Daily National Grain Market Summary

   Corn came to life late in the session to close higher while soybeans and 
wheat closed lower.  Corn buying interest improves as the day went on as gulf 
and country basis levels are strengthen.  Soybeans had two–sided trade with old 
crop beans lower and new crop beans slightly higher.  Wheat had slight losses
