Market Commentary

Overnight trade was quiet as expected with traders looking to reduce risk and position in preparation for tomorrow’s mid-session WASDE release. Wheat and soybeans were lower overnight, but corn held on to small gains. Dalian soy complex and corn futures were once again quite strong, while Euronext Paris wheat declined again with the December milling wheat contract dropping 2.25 euros to close at 213.00 euros. Trade during the day session was also quiet, and volume was modest. The feature was funds’ across-the-board selling, apparently an effort to reduce risk exposure ahead of the report.

Illuminating the value of technical research

On behalf of a commodity producer organization, WPI evaluated the outputs from a project that featured a $5 million investment into technical research over multiple years. WPI’s team captured the results of this extensive effort and synthesized them for presentation to the organization’s governing board; among the findings uncovered and presented for the first time was the development of genomic traits proven, via rigorous testing, to provide crop yield advantages of 50 percent or more to U.S. farmers in times of drought. Capturing measurable results from long-term efforts can be challenging. Educating clients on the dynamics of success measurement when quantifiable results are not readily available requires deep client-consultant collaboration and an ability to consider both near- and long-term client aspirations with market/policy dynamics – attributes that WPI brings to every consulting engagement.
