Sentiment in the market continues to change on almost a daily basis depending on the latest news on trade talks with China. President Trump speaks in New York today and traders are hoping he’ll have soothing words, because his negative comments over the weekend got the market off on the wrong foot Monday. With no news about the size of 2019 corn and soybean crops coming for two months, the market faces a lack of fresh insight that can make rallies difficult.
