Market Summary

Corn closed a fraction higher this morning with the March contract trading a narrow two cent range overnight. Since the beginning of the month, March corn futures have been stuck in a sideways trading range between $3.80 and $3.87. All eyes will be watching report for additional Chinese business. The trade appeared to be disappointed with last week’s totals. The prospect of China buying U.S corn has trader’s hopeful another rally may happen.

Soybeans traded higher overnight as trade optimism continues to offer support but the January contract closed six cents off session highs. Technically, the next level of resistance is $9.28 with support at last Monday’s gap from $9.09-$9.09¾. Weather forecasts are showing rain for Brazil over the next 10 days. This should stabilize an excellent crop that experienced some dryness. Look for lower trade today if we do not hear of additional soybean sales to China this morning.

Spring wheat closed a penny higher this morning as trade remains choppy. The March contract remains at the top end of the 30-60 day trading range. It now looks like winter wheat acres will be down 5% when initial estimates were for a 10-15% increase. All wheats are trading stronger in hopes to see better exports in the near futures.

Market Summary

Corn was weaker overnight yet again as good growing weather and trade concerns pressure the market.  The July contract was able to stay above its new contract low from last Friday.  December corn put in a contract high of $4.29 on May 24th and has now set its contract low of $3.79.  Funds continue to trim their length with a reported long of 84,500 contracts down 55,800.  Look for weaker trade off the open due to good growing conditions and trade concerns.

Soybeans traded two sided overnight with the July contract trading a wide twelve cent range.  July soybeans are currently just above $9.00, and front month soybeans have not traded below $9.00 since spring of 2016.  The Commitment of Traders showed funds being aggressive sellers of soybeans, as they sold 48,000 contracts bringing them to a net short of 11,400 contracts.  Look for lower trade on concerns with Chinses tariffs and favorable growing conditions.

Spring wheat traded lower overnight with the July contract trading a three cent range.  Currently, technical support is near $5.63 with resistance at $5.87.  The markets were weaker overnight on continued harvest pressure.  Winter wheat harvest has showed below average yields with decent quality and protein.  Look for lower trade off the open as we add to an already ample wheat supplies.

We will be hosting a Marketing Meeting Thurs. Jan 25th 1:00pm at Hastings Landing, lunch will be served.  We will be giving a market update and going over Compass contracts.  Please call the office to RSVP

Corn was weaker overnight as it appears the March contract wants to hang around the $3.50 mark. The market remains range bound from $3.45 to $3.55. The fifty day moving average is at $3.52. Large spec funds are short an estimated 252k, which could lead to a short covering rally. Look for slightly higher trade today on South American weather concerns.

Soybeans traded higher overnight on dryness in Argentina which triggered some fund buying. The market traded a six cent range overnight with the March contract closing just below the session high of $9.88. Hot and dry weather in Argentina has affected early planted soybeans which are now in the flowering stage. The forecast is expected to remain dry through early February. Look mostly higher trade today as the market has closed higher for seven consecutive sessions.

Spring wheat closed a penny higher this morning after trading a narrow two cent range overnight. Yesterday the market found support on technical selling and short covering. However, gains continue to be limited as the Southern plains received adequate moisture over the weekend. Look for mixed trade today.

Market Summary

Grain markets were higher overnight. Following the overnight session, corn is up two cents, soybeans are up three cents, and spring wheat is one cent higher.

Corn traded higher overnight closing at the overnight high of $3.58.  Support came overnight on a technical bounce after year lows were made yesterday.  Many southern states are well ahead of their five year average planting pace with Louisiana at 80% planted and Texas at 45% planted.  Look for slightly higher trade after hitting new lows yesterday.

Soybeans closed three cents higher this morning, with the May contract trading a five cent range overnight.  Soybean export inspections were 555tmt, down from the previous week’s 744tmt.  Look for a slight bounce today as the trade positions ahead of Friday’s acreage report.

Spring wheat traded higher overnight, with the May contract closing a penny off the overnight high of $5.35.  Yesterday, export inspections were 541tmt, down from the previous week’s 649tmt.  Kansas winter wheat conditions were unchanged at 38% good/excellent.  Texas was also unchanged at 34% good/excellent.  Look for slightly higher trade today as the market has seemed to find some support after the sharp decline the last couple of weeks.

CHS Drayton: Afternoon Market Wire (03/27)

Corn traded lower today on ample world supplies and spillover weakness in the wheat markets.

Soybeans closed four cents lower today with pressure from big crop ideas out of South America and a significant increase in U.S planed acres for 2017.  The average trade estimate for U.S 2017 soybean plantings is 88.21 million acres, up from 83.43 million acres last year.

Wheat traded lower the majority of the day, closing down three cents at $5.32.  Lower trade came on improved chances of moisture for the U.S Southern Plains this week.
