Traders Wait for Further Direction

Dec 06, 2012

Good Morning! Paul Georgy with early morning comments for December 6, 2012 at 4:45 am. Grain futures are mostly higher. Soybean complex has posted new highs for recent move overnight. Talk of China buying beans and weather in Argentina is providing support. The uncertainty of the ability of Congress to work out a plan to keep the US economy from going over the "fiscal cliff" is causing many traders to reduce positions going into year end deadline. Ethanol production last week was higher than the previous week but 12% below a year ago. The USDA target for ethanol use is 10% below last year. Weekly export sales will be released at 7:30 this morning. Trade estimates are for corn 350 to 550 tmt, soybeans 500 to 700 tmt, soyoil 50 to 100 tmt, soymeal 150 to 300 tmt and wheat 350 to 500 tmt. The USDA report will be the next talked about report. There should be no adjustment to US production on this report however there could be revisions on the demand side. We expect USDA to lower their estimates on Argentina corn production. Cash cattle traded in Nebraska at 122 for a few head of heavy cattle. Trade this week is expected to be lower than last week’s 125 on cattle in KS and TX. Show lists are large and margins are deep in the red. Packers have yet to bid for cattle in the south. Boxed beef was lower with choice down .16 and select down 1.69. Pork cutout was down .17. Watch for headlines to move market. Stay tuned to Allendale Advisory Report to get the full story.
