This is Bob Larson with the Market Line Report for Monday, August 21st. The grain market stabilizes waiting for important numbers in the week ahead. From the Allendale trading desk, here’s Steve Georgy ...

Georgy ... “So, we’ve got the markets actually very quiet overnight. Not a lot of direction. Corn right about unchanged, but we’ll see next week. We’ve got pro-farmers crop tour that starts. We’re going to see just the media frenzy on Twitter, anything social media, next week, will be what’s, well, what’s watched closely. What kind of yields do we have out there? How close is USDA with the last numbers they had? Wheat continuing to make some new lows. Overnight, though, wheat was up a couple cents, maybe some short covering, but huge supplies of wheat globally that’s keeping wheat under pressure and pushing into some new lows that we’ve seen her this week. So, we’ll see if that does continue.”
