Edwards Market Thoughts

Corn market is higher following news US/China will hold low level talks in late August. Strong new crop corn sales in the weekly export sales report.

COMMODITY                                              ACTUAL                                             TRADE ESTIMATES

CORN (OLD CROP)                                     338,900 MT’S                                 300,000-600,000 MT’S

CORN (NEW CROP)                                    1,044,800 MT’S                               300,000-1,000,000 MT’S

 SOYBEANS (OLD CROP)                            133,400 MT’S                                  100,000-400,000 MT’S

SOYBEANS (NEW CROP)                            571,600 MT’S                                   300,000-700,000 MT’S

Technicals turning friendly short term with next major resistance in CZ from $3.85-3.90. Argentine farmers are expected to plant a record corn areas of 14.3 mln acres, up 7% from last year. (Planting starts in Sept).

Overnight trade has soybeans finding support on a Reuters story that, "A Chinese delegation led by vice commerce minister Wang Shouwen will travel to the United States for trade talks in late August, China's Ministry of Commerce said on Thursday."  This support has spillover buying.  Also a Mexican delegation was in Washington yesterday to continue hammering out a NAFTA deal. Mexico has been eager to get something done ahead of their new President taking office in a few months. Canada has largely been left out of talks so far.

Pro Farmer crop tour kicks off Monday. Going to be interesting to hear what they have to say about maturity in the western corn belt where we saw a lot of late planted corn that is maturing ahead of normal.

I will be out of the office starting tomorrow through next Friday August 24th on Vacation.
