Rains Help Wheat Prospects

Sep 05, 2012

Good Morning! Paul Georgy with early morning comments for September 5, 2012 at 5:20 am. Grain futures are lower this morning. Allendale released the results of the 23rd Yield Survey of farmers which put the national average corn yield at 118.2 and soybeans at 34.9 bushels per acre. There were farmers from 32 states who participated in this year’s survey and Allendale wants to thank all who shared their information. When putting the production data into the USDA balance one has to wonder how they can make it work. We believe the USDA will likely reduce demand by 90% of any supply reduction which will leave the ending stock with only a minor change. Crop conditions had very little change from last week although soybeans improve 1% from very poor to fair. Soybeans posted new contract highs on Tuesday then sold off. Bear spreads were also a feature yesterday. This may be a signal the Bull Run in soybeans maybe coming to an end. Of course it will take more than one day but is a reason to watch for further signs. Talk of dry weather in South America is providing some interest in the contracts after March 2013. Argentina is expected to be releasing more corn export licenses, China’s economic data continues to show slowing and an ECB meeting will be held on Thursday. Mario Draghi will be making an announcement on Thursday which either could have real meaning or more of "kicking-the-can". Unemployment data will be released by the Labor Department on Friday morning. USDA supply and Demand report next Wednesday and FOMC meeting next Wednesday should give reason for grain futures increase volatility. Chart support today in December corn is 7.93 and 7.87. Live cattle futures are poised to continue the trend higher but need some help from the product market. On Tuesday choice beef was up .83 and select was up 1.23. Pork cutout values remain under pressure with a .85 lower price on Tuesday. We are looking for hog supplies to slow down in a few weeks which should support pork product going into October "Pork Month".

Yesterday’s new contract high of $17.89 in Nov. Soybeans comes with a few concerns. 1.) We made new highs on selling. 2.) We left a gap on the chart from Friday’s close to Monday night’s open that was filled during the day session. These negative ideas considered, we still have not seen a close below the 8/28 pivot low of $17.01 that would confirm a short term break in momentum. If we do see a close below $17.01 we would not be surprised by the looming peak and reversal threat that such a close would imply…Frank La Placa

Nelson Notes from the desk of Rich Nelson
Allendale Inc. released the results of its two week nationwide Farmer Yield Survey Tuesday morning. The firm found corn yields to be 118.2 bushels per acre which would put production at 10.326 billion bushels. Soybean yields, at 34.9, would produce at 2.602 billion bushel crop. These numbers are lower than USDA’s 10.779 and 2.692 billion August estimates. Allendale surveyed producers in 32 states.
