Corn market rebounding with wheat overnight with a flurry of wheat tenders popping up. March corn held $5.60 support with resistance at $5.80 and then $5.95-6.00.

Barge freight cost rising as low River levels causing barges to load lighter. St Louis for next week near 400% while IL River near 500% of tariff. Rail cars running $450 for spot BNSF and $250 for LH Dec. UP cars bids $300 vs $600 offer on spot and $150 vs $300 for LH Dec.

 Weekly export sales were toward upper end of the estimates, Ethanol prices continue to slide lower but margins generally still above $1.00 a gallon. US farmer selling remains quiet with most waiting for $6.00 cash or next tax season.
