Futures digest Tuesday's huge rally

Corn and soybeans move off overnight lows, wheat lags. (Audio)

Grain futures are mostly steady to lower this morning, consolidating Tuesday’s impressive gains. Corn and soybeans got bullish news yesterday from the USDA reports and are holding on to most of their rally. The news for wheat was bearish, causing more profit taking from yesterday’s sympathetic buying. Outside markets appear to be coming out of their bunker on improved hopes for a deal over Greek’s debt mess, but the dollar is stronger, remaining both a bellwether and a safe haven ahead of a holiday weekend.
