By Gary Truitt – Feb 26, 2017 Bower Market Strategy Report: A Sideways Trade Until SpringThe talk in the market last week was the new acreage estimates from the USDA. Jim Bower, with Bower trading, says there were not a lot of surprises in the numbers, “If there was a surprise it was that there were no big surprises. The market had been anticipating and trading the lower corn, higher soybean acres for weeks.” Bower added, historically, these numbers change significantly once spring arrives, “A truer number will be the perspective plantings report that will be released on March 30.”Bower says right now the market seems to be ready to trade in a sideways manner for a while, “I think the market wants to settle down and see how things develop as we closer to spring.” He feels the market has dialed in the current South American weather situation and harvest potential.For more information, contact Bower Trading at 1-800-533-8045.This material has been prepared by a sales or trading employee or agent of Bower Trading Inc and is, or is in the nature of, a solicitation.

House of Representatives Commission III, which oversees legal affairs, has finished the deliberations for a revision of the Constitutional Court Law, despite civil society’s concerns about potential conflict of interest that could harm the court’s impartiality.All political party factions in the commission agreed with the government on Monday to endorse the bill during the House’s plenary session on Tuesday.During a hearing with Commission III, Law and Human Rights Minister Yasonna Laoly read President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo’s stance on the bill. In the letter, the President said it was necessary to regulate the Court to prevent judicial tyranny while maintaining its independence. “The bill is needed to optimize the role of the Constitutional Court as the guardian of the Constitution,” Yasonna read out the letter on Monday.Commission III deputy chairman Adies Kadir of the Golkar Party said the lawmakers had agreed on changes to the law regarding the Court’s composition and authority, procedures for the appointment and dismissal of justices, the chief and deputy chief justice’s terms of office and minimum age requirements as well as procedures to appoint justice candidates.“We’ve also added new elements for the Court’s honorary council members by including an expert, as well as transitional provisions for justices who are still in office,” said Adies.Read also: Groups raise concern over ‘conflict of interest’ in Constitutional Court Law revision During a hearing on Friday, the House and the government agreed to set the minimum age for justices at 55 years – down from the 60 years proposed by the House. They also scrapped a provision stipulating that justices could only serve for five years and could be reelected for another term.They agreed to include a provision allowing justices currently in office to keep their positions until they are 70 years old, 10 years longer than regulated in the prevailing Constitutional Court Law of 2011.Civil society groups had criticized the move to revise the law, the draft for which was proposed by the Gerindra Party.They suspected that the bill was being used as a “political swapping” tool, as many controversial pieces of legislation were currently being challenged at the Court, such as the State Spending and Financial Relief Law, the Mining Law, the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) Law and the omnibus bill on job creation.Topics :

10 10 IN: Aston Villa’s Fabian Delph – click the arrow to see which attacker could leave the club – His contract expires at the end of the season and he has not signed an extension, so Villa and Tottenham are thought to be entertaining the idea of a swap: Dembele for Delph. 10 OUT: Andros Townsend – click the arrow to see the midfield engine to come in on loan – Aaron Lennon appeared to be on the verge of leaving, but recent displays may have prolonged the winger’s White Hart Lane career and Townsend may be the one to go. Southampton have been linked with the England ace. 10 10 OUT: Emmanuel Adebayor – click the arrow to see the goal scoring ace Spurs want – The striker is believed to be paid around £175,000 a week and as he has scored just two Premier League goals, Adebayor has been tipped to leave and make way for someone else. His previous club Monaco have expressed an interest in taking him back to France, with Qatari sides El Jaish Sports Club and Lekhwiya Sports Club rumoured to be prepared to top up his pension. OUT: Kyle Naughton – click the arrow to see which rapid right-back is set to come in – Now Kyle Walker has returned, there does not appear to be much first team action for Naughton, who is not short of admirers. Crystal Palace, Leicester and Swansea have all been linked with the 26-year-old. IN: Espanyol’s Hector Moreno – now click the arrow to see a player most Spurs fans will no doubt be glad to see the back of… – Mexico defender Moreno is known to Pochettino having played under him at Espanyol. However, he has played just once this season, the result of the player breaking his leg during the World Cup. Napoli defender Raul Albiol has also been mentioned as a possible candidate to join in January. IN: Seydou Doumbia: CSKA – now click the arrow to see which recently returned player could find his time at White Hart Lane is up – Doumbia is just one of a number of strikers rumoured to be on the Tottenham shortlist along with Jackson Martinez and Jay Rodriguez. CSKA are out of the Champions League and failed to reach the last 32 of the Europa League and the Russian side are thought to be willing to listen to offers. He scored three goals in his six European outings this season including a double against Man City and apparently has a £25m buy out clause, although his contract is up at the end of next season. Tottenham have been touted as the club to lead the way in terms of spending when the January transfer window opens.Spurs are in the frame to win the League Cup – they play Sheffield United in the semi-final – and are in the last 32 of the Europa League.They are four points from fourth spot, which is currently occupied by London rivals West Ham and a few additions to Mauricio Pochettino’s squad could be a huge boost.Here, talkSPORT looks at who could leave White Hart Lane and who could arrive, be it in January or next summer. IN: DeAndre Yedlin – Not only is Walker back, but DeAndre Yedlin is arriving from America in January having played his last game for MLS side Seattle Sounders. It means Pochettino will not have to continually field makeshift full-backs in Vlad Chiriches and Eric Dier. 10 OUT: Mousa Dembele – click the arrow to see the England international available to take his place – Tottenham are currently four points from a place in the Premier League top four, while they remain in the hunt for the League Cup and the Europa League, the winner of which enters the Champions League. With an injection of added quality, Spurs’ season could still be a success and the January transfer window is the perfect chance to plug a few holes and bid farewell to those who aren’t cutting it. Mousa Dembele appears to have fallen from favour and rumours of a move to Aston Villa and Stoke manager Mark Hughes signed him for Fulham have surfaced. 10 IN: PSG’s promising Adrien Rabiot – now click the arrow to see which defender could be shipped out – Rabiot recently signed a new deal keeping him in Paris until 2019, but is still struggling to break into the first team and could leave on loan for the remainder of the season. The 19-year-old PSG academy graduate describes himself as an engine, who enjoys being at the heart of play in midfield and may be a decent alternative for Pochettino should he fail to land Morgan Schneiderlin. 10 10 10 OUT: Vlad Chiriches – click the arrow to see the defender to shore up the back line – Chiriches has not enjoyed himself at the back since arriving from Steaua Bucharest in 2013 and recent reports have seen him linked with loan moves to Italy. Tottenham’s defence has been suspect at times this season, with Younes Kaboul, Jan Vertonghen whose future is uncertain and Federico Fazio other stoppers who have been criticised for their displays.
