Grains Quiet After Obama Win

Nov 07, 2012

Good Morning! Paul Georgy with early morning comments for November 7, 2012 at 5:00 am. Grains are mixed this morning in a narrow trading range. President Obama wins another 4 year term. The outside markets are reacting to the election results with a weaker dollar and higher metals. Grain traders will now focus on getting positioned for Friday’s report.  China will be auctioning 400 tmt of beans on Thursday. We also should be getting Brazil’s crop production numbers from CONAB tomorrow. Trade averages were released by newswires for Friday’s USDA report and the estimate is for lower corn production with higher ending stocks. The slowdown in corn usage is the main reason for increasing ending stocks. Soybean production is expected to be on average about 30 million bushel greater than last month. However, ending stock estimates average only 3 million bushels higher than last month. The aggressive Chinese demand is supporting this rationale. CME has lowered the margin requirement for corn and some spreads. The Deutsche Bank roll ends on Thursday and Goldman roll starts today. Livestock packers have been trying to bring their margins back in line. The recent weakness in product has pushed packer margins into the red by $80.00 per head. Slaughter is 17,000 head less than the same week a year ago. Boxed beef prices were higher on Tuesday with choice up .63 and select up 1.16. The cash hog price turn around yesterday is providing support for futures. Pork cutout was down 1.19 on Tuesday. Subscribe to the Allendale Advisory Report. Allendale’s Ag Leaders Conference is January 25 and 26, 2013.

Yesterday Jan Soybeans retraced Monday’s weak trade and is beginning to put in what looks to be the right shoulder of a head and shoulders bottom pattern. This pattern is not valid until we see a close above the neckline of $15.76…Frank La Placa

Nelson Notes from the desk of Rich Nelson
An official with the Goias Agricultural Federation suggests farmers in the states of Mato Grosso and Goias are now having to replant soybeans. Some of the acreage planted in late September and early October has not emerged. The trade still looks for Brazil to harvest a record crop. The question is whether it will be above USDA’s 81 mt estimate.
