Marketline Report Monday, July 17th
Georgy ... "It is the 14th and we've got a little bit of green on the screen for the grain markets. After taking an absolute blood-bath over the last few days, finally showing a little bit of green. And most of that focus is coming from the weather forecasts. You still look at the one to five day forecasts, it's got heat across most of the corn-belt. The six to ten day, same type of pattern as well. So, we'll see if that does continue. The big thing is, as we get going here over the next week, most of the corn will start to pollinate in a lot of these areas and it's going to be more detrimental for this heat to maybe cool off a little bit. We can't stay hot during pollination. That tends to effect yields and that may get this market back excited again."
