National Grain Market Summary:

Compared to yesterday, cash bids for wheat mixed, corn, and soybeans were lower. The boost in yesterday's futures market was not carried over into todays session. Especially, in the soybean complex, as the uncertainty between US and China remains.  In addition, the soybean carryout projected on the supply and demand report caused some hesitation.
