Corn futures were a little mixed today but closed with little change while beans finished 1 to 2 cents better. Overall, trade today was pretty lackluster as we head into the long weekend. U.S. and Chinese trade negations continue to drag on with anything in the way of a trade deal being absent. Weekly export sales were solid for corn today but bean sales fell below expectations, however they did still meet the quantities needed per week to reach current USDA projections. Weather remains at the forefront of market focus but current wet Midwest weather conditions have not been able to mount any type of a rally at this time. Funds ended the day being estimated net buyers of 4,000 contracts of both corn and soybeans. Outside market saw the Dow up around 125, Crude Oil was up 25 cents, and the U.S. Dollar Index was weaker.
