morning. US Senate votes on the infrastructure bill today. 


a choppy trade today in commodity and equity markets.  USD is higher, WTI higher, equities mixed, and gold lower. 


soybeans turned higher after soybean oil paired some losses and corn strengthened. November Canadian canola is lower.  US wheat is mixed (CHI & KC higher, MN lower) with ongoing correction with Minneapolis spreads against Chicago and KC.  Overnight there was

ridge is likely July 24-30 which will lead to net drying in at least part of the western Corn Belt and in much of the Hard Red Winter Wheat Region and Northern Plains.  Some of the models have the ridge shifting at the end of the month south while other have
it shifting west.  Either way, weather disturbances moving along the northern part of the ridge could provide at least some temporary relief though to northern hard red winter wheat areas and in the eastern part of the Northern Plains.
