Grains: Over night July Corn traded 4'0 higher at 629'0, July Beans 5'6 higher lower at 1432'2 and July Wheat 5'4 higher at 663'2. Strong export demand from China has pushed Corn back into resistance in the 630'0 area. We have taken profits from all long Corn positions. It is time to start watching crop progress and weather as to high it will be effecting new crop prices.

Silver: July Silver is currently 48 cents higher at 28.50. I am comfortable holding a small long position at the moment. June Gold is currently 15.00 higher at 1590.00.
