Grain futures are mostly lower as another week of trading gets underway, with the trends from Friday’s close following through into the overnight session Sunday night and Monday morning. Bearish reversals lower in wheat and corn triggered follow through selling in those markets while soybeans are mixed, supported by tight old crop stocks. Rains will stall planting early in the week in the central Corn Belt, but it appears enough of the crop got planted last week to keep prospects for 2014 production on track.
