Flat to weaker in rangebound trade amid a lack of market-moving news. CBOT December corn settled up 2 cents at $3.43-1/2 per bushel, holding above the contract low set Thursday at $3.40-3/4. Market anchored by ample USA supplies and the USDA's estimate of a record-high US corn yield.

Chicago Board of Trade (CBOT) grains closed lower on Monday with soybean futures falling to their lowest in a month, pressured by improving crop weather in South America and chart-based selling. The CBOT January soybean contract dipped to $9.82-1/2 a bushel ahead of the daily pause in trade, its lowest since October 31 and just below its 50-day moving average. The most active soybean futures were little changed at $9.86-3/4 a bushel, after firming 0.2 percent on Friday.
