COMMERCIAL OUTLOOK: Commercials have reined in short positions but continue to favor the short side of the market where they have likely already sold against cash as of Aug. 2. The December contract is priced 8 cents below the March contract, a bearish indication of commercial demand for new-crop corn, while basis remains firm and bullish.
