Grain futures are higher this morning, paced by double digit gains in soybeans. Forecasts for potential frost in parts of the western Midwest Wednesday morning along with signs of stronger demand help spur follow-through buying as bears liquidate short positions. Wheat and corn are also higher, benefiting from steady buying during most of the overnight session. Last week’s dry trend over the Corn Belt could continue for at least another week, likely hurting ratings in this afternoon’s Crop Progress report.
