The crop markets stabilized after the recent gains to multi-month highs. Market-moving news was fairly light today. There was an export sale of nearly 4.4 million bushels of corn to unknown destinations and a weekly energy report showed increases in ethanol production and stocks.

Weekly export sales will be released Friday morning.
