Closing Market Comments

Markets traded 2 sides today.  Markets were lower overnight as traders reacted to better than expected planting progress.  Corn traded mostly lower pressured by the estimated corn production from the Ukraine of 25.2 mmt for 2022.  The previous estimate was 18.5 mmt.  China makes plans to accept Brazilian corn by signing the Protocol on Phytosanitary Requirements which could reduce US export potential.  Beans were pressured by the lower corn market, but old crop closed up 6 and new near unchanged.  Concerns of tight supply continues to support the bean complex.  Wheat closed sharply lower on higher than expected Ukrainian wheat production estimates for 2022.  The Dow traded lower early but is up 76 points currently.  The Nasdaq is lower along with the US dollar.  Crude is sideways to slightly lower.  Gold and silver are up.
