Tim Hannagan, Walsh Trading Inc. senior grain analyst, says profit-taking (traders selling short positions) is pushing the farm markets up, today.
"Big breaks in the markets always bring on profit taking. Profit taking is a little easier with talk in the back ground of a potential heat dome moving into the Midwest next week. Plus, the some in the trade feel like an early frost is certain this year," Hannagan says.
