Feb USDA Report Analysis

Feb 08, 2013

Click play to hear our take on this morning's USDA Report

Grains are trading mixed after this morning's USDA report, at the moment we see corn up 6 1/2, soybeans off 3 1/2, and wheat up 14 cents. The USDA increased projected food and seed use by 20 million bushels, but reduced projected exports by 50 million bushels resulting in a net increase to ending stocks by 30 million bushels. Soybean crushings were raised 10 million bushels, resulting in 10 million bushels taken off US ending stocks. Wheat ending stocks came in lower than trade expectations after the USDA raised feed and residual use by 25 million bushels.

Market expectations are for corn ending stocks to be increased by 16 million bushels, soybean ending stocks down 6 million bushels, and wheat ending stocks up 11 million bushels. Which demand side numbers could see revisions tomorrow?  Brock and Logan discuss this and other issues impacting the grains right now.

Ethanol Numbers, Export Expectations, How Will Friday's Report Turn Out?

Feb 06, 2013

 

In today's episode Cody and Brock examine the ethanol numbers that were released this morning. Ethanol production did see a slight uptick this week and stocks moved lower. Corn going to ethanol production is suspect for a revision lower as Friday's USDA/WASDE reports are near. If ending stocks are revised higher, partially due to ethanol, some key technical support areas are outlined. Tomorrow's export estimates are as follows (000s MT): wheat 300-500; corn 100-300; soybeans 900-1,300. Tune in for a full recap of today's action.

Dry South American Weather Rallies Soybeans

Feb 04, 2013

 

A mixed trade was the result today with corn and wheat ending lower and soybeans continuing its march higher. South American weather remains the driving force behind the soybean rally. Hot, dry weather will persist this week giving the bulls some fuel to push the market higher. The $15 level on soybeans will be the area to watch as resistance is expected to slow the rally. Corn and wheat missed expectations for weekly export inspections, while soybeans once again exceeded expectations. Tune into today's episode for a full recap.
