On The Corn Front we ended up higher in yesterday’s action. The Russian missile attack that hit Poland set the stage and the grain complex trading in fear.

There is a price war for competitive prices in the import/export markets. In the overnight electronic session the December corn is currently trading at 660 ¾ which is 6 cents lower. The trading range has been 665 ¼ to 660 ¼.
