Soybean prices remain near the midpoint of a broad range between 8.00 and 9.00. Support is from hope that China will be a large buyer of US soybeans. So far China buying has been a few cargoes for crushers. They need to buy for reserves to push prices closer to resistance. Talk of higher US 2020 supplies offers resistance

Corn futures remain in a 3.00-3.40 range. Drop in US ethanol demand and talk of higher US 2020 supplies limits gains. So far, US Midwest weather is favorable.

Some could see WN-CN spread continue to gain wheat over corn. Some link this to higher wheat prices due to higher Russia prices and lower corn due to higher US supplies. A few could see the spread test+3.00.
Wheat prices are higher from follow through buying from Wednesday. Higher wheat prices linked to drier West Europe weather and talk of lower Russia 2020 crop. Rain is forecasted for parts of US HRW areas. Kansas wheat tour estimated 2020 crop yield near 42.5 versus USDA 47.0.
