Illinois grains and soybean bids closed moderate to sharply lower. The grains opened Monday
in a negative tone following a bearish USDA report last Friday. Additional pressure for corn
and soybeans came from favorable weather in South America, along with economy worries
and uncertainties compelling the markets. The stock market was lower with crude oil having
sharp losses and precious metals also lower. Chicago December corn futures trended 20
cents lower at 7.21. January soybean futures closed .94 cents lower at 14.02. Soybean
futures were sharply lower for the week in response early in the week from the bearish USDA
Supply and Demand Reports. However, some positive news from overnight export
announcement and bullish NOPA crush numbers limit the losses for soybeans. NOPA crush
came in well above estimates at 153.54 million bushels as compared to 119.73 in September.
Wheat also saw some support from lower winter wheat crop ratings which came in at 36
percent good to excellent, down 3 percent from last week. Wheat was 45-50 cents lower.
Corn was mostly 16-22 cents lower. Cash basis at Illinois River terminals started the week
higher, but ended lower on concerns of river closures or reduced traffic on the Mississippi
River south of St Louis. Lower water levels from the drought are blamed for the closure.

bids dropped 91 to 93 cents to 14.17 to 14.22, with basis 1 to 3 cents higher at +14F to +17F.

with basis steady ranging from option Z to +10Z. At the Illinois River terminals south of Peoria,
cash corn bids ended 3 to 5 cents lower ranging from 7.22-7.31, with basis 15 to 20 cents
higher at 1Z to 10Z. Cash soybean bids lost 88 to 91 cents at 14.05-14.14, with basis 3 to 6
cents higher ranging from 3F to 12F. New crop wheat bids for delivery in July 2013 ended 40
to 41 cents lower ranging from 8.23-8.24, with basis steady to 1 cents higher at -31N to -30N.
At the Illinois River terminals north of Peoria, cash corn bids fell 8 to 9 cents to 7.09-7.23, with
basis 2 to 13 cents higher at -12Z to 2Z. Cash soybean bids were down 96 to 97 cents to
