Tim Hannagan, Walsh Trading Inc. grain analyst, says
corn and beans are trading the bearish crop condition reports Monday that pushed corn up 4% and beans 5%. It helps traders feel the USDA in line with their thinking crops are bigger," Hannagan says.
Corn is holding its lows but beans are off lows as strong demand has buyers buying breaks until the Nov. 8 crop report confirms crop size, he says.
