Grain futures are higher across the board this morning, getting a leg up from chart-based buying and weather. Rains last week slowed both harvest and hedge pressure from elevators buying grain off the combine, though frost over the weekend likely caused no significant damage to what are expected to be record crops. USDA updates its estimates of production, supply and demand on Friday, also triggering a little position squaring.
