Prices were mostly firmer in quiet overnight electronic trading. Wheat has made a strong rebound as it appears near-term lows are in place. Corn bulls are trying to put in a near-term low, but are fading and need to show power soon. Soybeans are still the weak sister of the complex, and more downside is likely in the near term. Seasonal studies do favor the corn and bean bears this time of year, as harvest is set to begin for those crops.
