In the outside markets, the crude oil market is $10.24 per barrel lower at $68.15 the U.S. Dollar is lower, and the Dow Jones Industrials are 905 points lower (-2.53%) at 34,899.

PJ Quaid, RJ O’Brien broker, says that today’s trade had a lot to do with the risk off because of the outside markets.

“A lot of money has been put to work in the ag markets the past two weeks and that COVID “variant” in South Africa has spooked a lot of traders. Also, this is a low liquidity holiday environment. March wheat got down to $8.23 1/2 on the open! So, it looks like the aggressive selling we saw on the open was overdone,” Quaid says.

Today is last trading day for all of the Dec. grain options contracts and I expected wild swings all day,” Quaid says.

Separately, the delayed USDA’s Weekly Export Sales Report Friday shows strong demand figures for corn and soybeans.

Corn= 1.49 million metric tons (mmt.) vs. the trade expectations of 750,000-1.40 mmt.
