Pay our salary, we'll come work for you.' And they said, 'No.' So then we went to Hewlett-Packard, and they said, 'Hey, we don't need you. You haven't got through college yet.'"

The markets were mixed today as traders search for news to continue yesterday’s rally. Corn led the way during the session on strong long-term fundamentals as global stocks are expected to tighten this upcoming marketing year. A sale of 121.7K MT to unknown also helped drive prices higher. Soybeans pulled back off yesterday’s prices with no fresh news to help continue the rally. Beans have bounced nearly 40 cents from its lows with little change in fundamental news. Wheat was weaker on the wetter weather outlook in Europe and the Black Sea over the next 7-10 days.
