Corn is finally trading heat fill?............but  week 2 might turn cooler?...............which would be bearish.

The widespread, big rain events are also over now but the wet areas need to dry out.

 Double bottom on charts?

Corn historical perspective:

Who remembers $8 corn not so long(5 years) ago   

Is the bottom in? If we have heat fill(extended heat from late July thru August), it is. If we turn cooler later this month, maybe not.
