    Rice Comment

    November rice completely retraced Monday’s losses and ended the day up sharply. The market again found resistance at $15.60, however. USDA says that 94% of the U.S. crop has been harvested, while Arkansas farmers ended last week with 92% of their crop in the bins. World supplies are comfortable, with a large stockpile of rice in Asia looming over the market, limiting upside potential.
