Today turned out to be correction day.  We got a friendly report on Friday and were unable to make new highs today.  We finished right at support at 10.33 November futures.  The next level of support is 10.23.  Corn has a ways to go to hit support at 3.83 and 3.76 December futures.  The main reason for the correction today seems to be added rain in the forecast for Brazil.  It doesn't take much to drop the market like this when the funds are at record lengths and taking profits.  With that being said do I think the bean market is over?  I doubt it.  The 290 carryout the USDA just gave us remains friendly.  This winter we will still likely see wild swings trading demand news, South American weather, and of course the election.  Buckle in for a while.  This correction is overdue without a doubt.  The corn report was not real friendly, as it continues to follow the soybean market.  The DOW is up 250 points as we close in on that 29k level we can't seem to hold.  We will not get an updated harvest pace until tomorrow since it is Columbus Day.
