FOR FRIDAY: (7/27) Cycles are bearish for grains on Friday and we think the bears will win but if weather changes over the weekend, they may come back. You often have to be short beans and corn into the last week of July when they trash them so glad we have something on. Cattle look…

FOR THURSDAY: (7/26) $12 Billion in new farm aid to combat tariffs helped markets on Wednesday, and they’re higher overnight.

FOR FRIDAY: (7/13) Grains’ bounce was healthy but not thinking that it will last very long and it should be easy to get pattern completions to 338 on Dec. corn and 817-20 on Nov. beans if we are patient. Use rallies to hedge.
