Weekend Ag Update

 

March 24, 2019

 
 

Corn

 

Last Week’s Close:  May corn futures finished Friday’s session up 2 ½ cents, extending gains for the week to 5 ¾ cents.  Friday’s Commitment of Traders report showed that funds sold 3,361 contracts through March 19th, extending their net short position to 261,326 futures/options.

 

Quick Take: Weather has been a growing concern in the Midwest.  It is a possibility that we see planting delays in areas and maybe even a shift of acres from corn to beans.  Freight disruption on flooded rivers is also a concern with plenty of snow melt yet to come.  We believe this issue will stick around for a minute, which could encourage a wave of fund short covering.  The technicals started to firm up last week, prompting us to change our bias from Neutral/Bullish to outright Bullish, in our Thursday morning report.  Check out our Grain Express tomorrow morning for the full technical breakdown.

 

 

Soybeans

 

Last Week’s Close:  May soybeans finished Friday’s session down 6 ¼ cents, putting prices 5 cents lower for the week.  Friday’s Commitment of Traders report showed that funds bought 26,205 contracts through March 19th, trimming their net short position to 63,922 futures/options.
