    Rice futures continued lower today. According to USDA, the crop is now caught up with previous years. The question now is, how many acres were actually seeded and were they too late to achieve top yield-potential. This week’s action makes the charts look toppy, with September closing below $16. The sharp up-trend that began in May has been broken this week. Futures could be confirming a top at the recent high of $16.47 ½.
