Max Armstrong's Daily Updates

MIDDAY Midwest Digest, June 19, 2018

Max Armstrong talks about heroism, bearish grain markets, crop conditions and price drops, as well as left-lane drivers.

Would be able to perform an act of heroism? Two men in Rockford, Ill., were, as they saved a man from a car sinking in flood waters.

How much more bearish can the grain market get?

Soybean condition slipped slightly, but the corn crop actually improved. On average, the U.S. corn crop is 78% good/excellent.

Since late May, corn prices have slipped nearly 70¢/bushel, and soybeans are down $2.

A police officer pulled over a driver for refusing to move out of the left lane.
