 DAILY GRAIN COMMENTS 

May soybean futures are trading 11 cents lower mid-morning on Friday at $9.80 while May corn futures are trading steady at $3.56 1/2. Wheat futures are up 2-3 cents which is helping support corn values to some degree.Weather forecasts continue to run amazingly beneficial almost across the globe. Weekly corn export sales of 53 million was above expectations and places year-to-date sales 624 million ahead of last years pace. Traders believe April weather will have the biggest impact on corn acres planted but most are looking at 90-91.5 million acres. Increasing competition from South American's large soybean crop is leaning heavily against futures U.S. sales and prices. Despite the charts showing oversold conditions soybean futures have continued to march lower. If weakness continues we could be headed toward the weekly lows on the charts of $9.40 set back in late September and early October.
