Corn lower and beans stronger throughout the overnight and day sessions.  Soybeans found no willing sellers below the 200-day moving average during the day session, triggering technical buying and a solid bounce to an 11 cent higher finish.  A lack of any fresh news in corn resulted in continued risk-off and a close of 4 cents lower on the board.  Yesterday's weekly crop progress report showed the crop maturity and early harvest is progressing relatively normal to average across the U.S.  We will continue to see technical buying and some bounces higher on the daily charts but we will likely continue on our seasonal trend lower.  NOAA 7-day weather outlooks will put pressure on the markets as long as they favor corn drying and field work.  In our local area, we expect to be close to full harvest by the weekend.
