Since Monday's USDA report, which set the stage for bullish prices, corn and soybean prices have steadily fallen from Monday's surge.

Al Kluis with Kluis Commodity Advisors says in the short term prices are under pressure as investors are looking to get out of risky investments. He notes Monday's WASDE report is still bullish for prices long term.

Bob Limmeman with Kluis Commodity Advisors says grain prices are feeling selling pressure following a bullish start to the week. 

 "The pattern of lower lows and lower highs is prevalent on most grain charts as we prepare to wrap up trading this week," he says. "Headlines have definitely favored the bear camp, while traders also prepare for harvest selling pressure. The risk of further headline pressure remains high as global tensions involving Russia, Ukraine, China and Taiwan intensify."
