Edwards Market Thoughts

Sharp overnight losses in grains due in part to fears of retaliatory tariffs from China on US products. Interestingly, I don’t recall this much fuss when China slapped tariffs on US ddg’s, ethanol and sorghum last year? Let the negotiations begin!

The Buenos Aires grains exchange has lowered their estimate of the Argentine soybean and corn harvests to harvest 39.5 million tonnes and 32 million tonnes of corn respectively in 2017/18. Their previous estimates were 42 million and 34 million tonnes.

Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer reports progress on NAFTA talks between the US, Canada, and Mexico after a tough auto-content demand was dropped by the United States. While challenges remain, analysts feel a deal may be in reach.

Dow futures under 24K mark this morning off another 83 points after big hit yesterday. S&P futures off 5.30 at 2,638.00. Crude up .23 at $64.53. US $ Index showing modest losses.

Mediocre to disappointing export numbers: corn at 1.470.2 and Beans 759.1.

Look for this market to stay under pressure today as trade tries to figure out where this tariff issue goes from here!
