Good afternoon,

  • South America's weather is improving, dry areas are set to see rain in the upcoming days
  • Highs were charted on Wednesday, but the market was unable to break through key technical chart targets which encouraged profit-taking
  • The Buenos Aires Grain Exchange lowered their corn and wheat production estimate and in turn raised their soybean production estimate
  • The Dow closed higher followed by the energy markets with the U.S. dollar softer
  • Grain markets will be closed on Thursday for Thanksgiving and will trade on Friday from 8:30 AM to12:05 PM
Have a great weekend!
