Afternoon Comments 07/31

The Export Sales report discouraged corn traders. The USDA report indicated a disappointing total for old crop corn sales, although the new crop total easily topped forecasts. The former apparently grabbed the attention of traders, as indicated by subsequent CBOT weakness. Superlative growing conditions are encouraging bears. September corn dropped 4.75 cents to $3.57/bushel in late Thursday trading, while December lost 4.5 cents to $3.67.
