Will the July WASDE Report Help Grains Find a Bottom?

Jul 10, 2014

With the crop good-to-excellent ratings on soybeans at a 20 year highs, yield will likely be left alone from the June report. This means 14/15 soybean supply is likely to come out 169 million bushels over last month's WASDE report and up 425 million bushels from last year. The average analyst expects ending stocks to be reported at 418 million bushels which would imply that demand would increase nearly 76 million bushels from June's report, less than half the expected supply increase. Looking back over the last 14 years we would expect the majority of the demand gains to come from exports which responds more readily to large changes in supply and price. In 2006/07 when supply increased 10% year-over-year, export sales made up nearly ¾ of the demand response to the increased production. In 2009/10, another year with a 10% increase in supply, we saw export sales account for 70% of the demand response year-over-year. 

 

Trade estimates for 14/15 U.S. soybean ending stocks do not factor in a robust response from the demand side as seen in 2009/10 or 2006/07. This sets up the soybean market for a potentially positive report on Friday following weeks of sharp selling. We feel any bounce should be used as a pricing opportunity as the long term fundamentals still look undoubtedly bearish. During the 2006/07 marketing year prices approached $9.00 per bushel and looking back to 1975 soybean prices have found support around the $9.00 per bushel level. These historical benchmarks are important as we enter a very different marketing year from what traders have become accustomed to in recent growing seasons.

Corn/Beans Continue Lower, Wheat Finds Some Buyers

Jul 03, 2014

Corn and soybeans both ended the week lower, extending losses from Monday's USDA report day. Corn closed at contract lows while soybean futures were unable to push below Monday's bottom. Today we discuss the technical landscape and the cash market.

 

This week we have seen a divergence in corn and soybean basis. Corn basis for spot delivery has decreased 2 cents on average for the week ending 7/2/14 while soybean basis increased 2 cents on average throughout the U.S. during the same time period. The largest basis changes occurred for premium soybean facilities such as crushing plants and for terminals along the river. The roll from the July contract into the August or September contracts have played a big role in the basis landscape this week.

 

 

Soybean basis along the river improved an average of 6 cents this week to help entice grain out of farmer bins after soybeans futures for the August contract sold off 47 cents in the last seven days. Cash movement has been slow as farmers remain uneager to sell into the weakness following the bearish June 30th planted acreage report and quarterly grain stocks report.  Soybean crush plants also bumped their basis by 6 cents on average throughout the country.

 

Shipping delays continue to be problem along the river. This week the river continues to have delays as a result of high waters. Continued rains in that region have caused a number of lock closures and are likely to stop barge movement between Bellevue, IA and Clarksville, MO. The closures began on June 27th at New Boston, IL and should affect Clarksville, MO by July 7th. It is unknown how long these delays will last.

 

Corn basis at ethanol plants declined 1 ¼ cents this week in line with the country average as basis along the river took the biggest hit, dropping -4 ½ cents.
