Soybeans Higher, Corn Lower Going into Report
Oct 11, 2012
Good Morning! Paul Georgy with early morning comments for October 11, 2012 at 5:10 am. Grains are mixed with beans up 15 to 20 and corn down 1 to 2 cents. A reminder: the open outcry session for grains opens today at 7:20 due to the USDA report at 7:30. Key trade estimates are: yield for corn at 122.9 bpa and soybeans at 37.0 bpa. Harvested acres estimate for corn is 86.136 which is 1.225 million acres less than USDA Sept number. Ending Stocks estimates for corn and soybeans are 648 and 134 million bushel, respectively. This would suggest tighter corn supplies and larger soybean supplies. The report will no doubt have something for both the bulls and bears. I will be sharing details from the report on Allendale "Morning Coffee"
on YouTube shortly after the data is released. Once the report reaction is completed, traders will be focusing on world economic conditions. The IMF is holding their annual meeting in Tokyo, Japan this week. The comments coming out of that conference have trader’s concerned about the economic stability in the EU and the slowdown in China’s economy. Livestock markets are nervous this morning as their bottom line outlook will be impacted by the USDA report. Futures strength and product value improvement is suggesting a higher cash trade for cattle this week. Boxed beef is weaker, choice down .22 and select down .37. Pork cutout value was up .96.

Yesterday Dec Lean Hogs broke out to new highs which reconfirms the uptrend. In order to break the uptrend and increase the odds for a reversal lower, we will need to see a close below the $75.80 level which has been confirmed as key support…Frank La Placa
