Morning Markets: Corn -7 old & newBeans -10 old & -11 new.  Wheat -2.
The grain markets are lower as crop conditions improve unexpectedly while the weather outlook for next week shows a much-needed break in the heat. Nearby corn and bean futures slipped back below the 20-day moving average last night. The lack of progress on trade relations with China and news that importers are passing on US origins due to price, both remain bearish factors for price.
