Crop futures firmed despite negative factors Wednesday. The surging U.S. grain harvest is building grain and soy supplies. Moreover, equity market tumbled and the U.S. dollar continued its upward march, both of which are seen as bearish demand indicators. Still, the crop markets held up surprisingly well today. That probably reflected suspicions that the markets are deeply oversold. December corn futures edged up 0.5 cent to $3.2125/bushel late Wednesday, while May added 0.75 to $3.4275.
