Grain futures are lower across the board this morning, with bullish news in short supply. Both nearby corn and soybeans confirmed Tuesday’s break below the channels that marked their rallies in October and November, with heavy volume in corn noted ahead of Friday’s options expiration. South Korea bought less corn than expected at a series of tenders overnight, and the deals may not be sourced with grain from the U.S., which is more expensive than shipments out of Brazil or Ukraine.
