Marketline Report for Tuesday, August 1st
McGathey ... "Today, the last day of the month, soybeans were lower. Favorable weather really weakened the grain across the board. Month-end trading blues kind of gave a mixed message today so the markets were kind of up and down. But, futures really remained, in a short-term channel. That being said, this weather market isn't over yet so there's a lot to be looking at right now. Tomorrow could be the consummate turn-around-Tuesday so we're going to watch that closely. As wheat also fell in the market, global supplies really remained pretty ample right now and they're holding the market steady."
