Edwards Market Thoughts

10/12/18 8:10 am

Export sales report 10-12-18: Corn on the lower side of trade estimates and soybeans very disappointing. 

COMMODITY                      ACTUAL                                                                     TRADE ESTIMATE

 CORN                          1,006,600 MT’S                                                     1,000,000-1,500,000 MT’S

 SOYBEANS                     439,600 MT’S                                                        800,000-1,300,000 MT’S

Markets will be monitoring weather over the weekend to see if harvest delay’s due to snow and rain will continue.  At present looks as though we will have a break in areas and warmer temps are forecasted for the end of next week.

USDA numbers took most by surprise, especially for corn on the decrease in yield.  Looking at the state by state changes, Iowa and Illinois yields were both dropped by 2 bushels/acre, and Nebraska was dropped by 3 bushels/acre. Yields in Indiana were raised by 2 bushels/acre, and Minnesota was left unchanged. In addition to the yield change, the USDA is now projecting corn exports to be a record 2.475 billion bushels. . State yields for soybeans in Iowa and South Dakota were increased by 1 bushels/acre, and many of the other higher producing states were left unchanged. Other than a decrease in planted acres, there were no other balance sheet changes. Carryout was a bit less than expected.

December corn futures continues to find tough support above the $3.69 ¾ number.
