Tension Builds as USDA Report Approaches
Jul 11, 2012
Good Morning! Paul Georgy with early morning comments for July 11, 2012 at 5:15 am. Corn and soybean futures are mostly higher ahead of USDA report. Open Outcry session will open at 7:20 this morning. Any weather forecast change will likely overshadow the USDA report. However traders will use the report to adjust yield as the USDA will be using estimates from July 1. Cash markets at the gulf are weaker in corn overnight. Demand is slowing down for higher priced grains. USDA report is out at 7:30 this morning. Key points to watch for are 2011-12 ending stocks for corn and soybeans. Trader’s average estimates are 170 mb for beans and 840 mb for corn. Yield will be the key to ending stocks for 2012-13. Traders are expecting corn yields to drop to mid to low 150’s on this report. That would take ending stocks down to 1.232 mb from 1.881 mb last month. Also keep an eye on changes in world production. Get the full breakdown on the Allendale "Morning Coffee"

Yesterday’s trade in Dec Wheat shows a market that is still taking a break at higher levels. While the major uptrend is the dominant feature on the chart if the gap that was left on 7/5 is filled, a correction should be expected.

Nelson Notes from the desk of Rich Nelson
While the market has been following the high priced corn issue closely from a short term standpoint we still feel this should be more of a long term story. Extremely high temperatures in the past two weeks likely impacted breeding herd performance.
