Traders expect USDA to raise its corn and soybean export projections, as total bookings are running well ahead of the needed pace to reach USDA's forecasts. Total corn bookings (sales plus shipments) as a percent of total exports are at 91%, which compares to 76% last year at this time and a five-year average of 64%. Meanwhile, total soybean bookings as a percent of total exports are at 106%, which compares to 94% last year and the five-year average of 85%.
