We are constantly told that antique stoves are very rare. Most are far more common than most folks think. Here are photos of my truck returning with three loads of stoves. The last photo is late April 2013 and is the first of perhaps three loads to be removed from one home. This first load is 5 pre 1900 ranges and about 4 parlor stoves. The middle photo is a Glenwood double oven range plus about half a ton of parts we found when the snow melted. The parlor stoves range from fairly recent to the mid 1800's. Antique stoves are rarely thrown out in New England and there are still many out there to be found.

Be that as it may, markets do not appear overtly concerned this morning as grains have pushed lower initially, with beans holding rather insignificant strength. News wise, they have little fresh to work with, at least little that would provide encouragement. The Rosario Grain Exchange lowered their estimate for the Argentine soy crop to 37 MMT, which is down 3 million from their last prediction but that is hardly stunning news at this point. They believe the bean harvest in that nation is now 28% complete. Further north, ABIOVE, which is the Brazilian Association of Vegetable Oil Industries bumped their estimate for the bean crop in that nation to MMT, which I believe currently places them at the top of the estimates and MMT above the estimate this week from Uncle Sam.
