Edwards Market Thoughts

8/15/18 8:00am

Corn is down 2-3 cents this morning thanks to pressure from soybeans, wheat, and rains overnight. Look for CZ to spend most of its time trading between 3.72 and 3.79 today.

Dow futures reversing gains yesterday and down 161 points at 25,133. Crude off 64 points at $66.40. US $ Index strong overnight and at new highs for the move.

Funds bought 11K corn and 6K soybeans yesterday and now guesstimated net short 95 and 70K respectively.

The markets continue to monitor U.S./China tariff dispute, NAFTA talks, U.S. weather along with the global weather.  Lower call this a.m. as the market monitors forecasted rain event that could put the final touch on soybean yields.  The haves and have nots for precip will be watched very close.

All though, Weather becoming less of a factor by the minute!

Food for thought- As we get closer to the end of August, and are waiting for a market bounce higher. We have to remind ourselves that there is a lot of country elevators Price Later Programs or (DP) that come due at the end of the month, and the market knows this!! There are also futures long positions VS the Sept 18 that will be coming do also, which can keep a cap on any market moves..
