USDA Report Bearish Beans
Nov 09, 2012
A lot of red across the board this morning after the USDA's November Crop report. Ending stocks for soybeans come in well above trade expectations, and at the moment we see the January contract trading down 22 cents. USDA raised soybean export expectations by 80 million bushels, crush by 20 million bushels, but a yield estimate a full bushel per acre higher than trade expectations resulted in ending stocks coming in at 140 million bushels vs the 130 million expected.
Less fireworks this morning for corn and wheat. Corn is trading unchanged but wheat is down 9 cents in Chicago and and 8 1/2 in KC. Ending stocks for US wheat was raised 50 million bushel as a result of a 50 million decrease in exports, and we had Ukraine export expectations raised to 6 MMT.
