The grain markets are entering 2017 with a very mixed setup. Wheat and corn saw a reflation theme emerge in the second have of 2016 after falling to a deeply oversold position. Soybeans bottomed in August 2016 and have seen solid gains from those lows. Global economic news continues to suggest positive growth for 2017.
