Corn and soybeans continued their recovery on Friday.  After trade held steady near unchanged during the overnight hours, 8:30 brought with it the beginning of today's climb back up the hill.  From the recent lows printed at the beginning of the week, corn has recovered around 20 cents and soybeans about 40 cents going into the weekend.  The USDA remains silent at 8 a.m. but enough business has been getting done this week that next week's weekly export sales report may provide some sort of indirect confirmation if we don’t see anything sooner.
