feed-grains soy-oilseeds wheat

Market Commentary

It was a peaceful night session with corn and wheat showing very little change. Meanwhile, soybeans were 7-8 cents higher with meal up $2.00-3.00. Markets will probably be in idle mode until there are more developments on trade issues either with China or NAFTA. They seem to have factored in th...

feed-grains soy-oilseeds wheat

Market Commentary

Welcome to summer! Led by soybeans, which eased about 6 cents lower, trading during the overnight session found prices with a lower bias. The grains were mostly lower also but did not stray far from Wednesday’s closes. On the trade front, the war of words continues. However, there is no s...

Market Commentary

After trade war fears sank grain and soy futures yesterday, the overnight session opened cautiously. Prices edged a bit higher, but trading was tentative and volume was low. Yesterday’s emotional lashing left markets in a highly oversold state. However, without a signal that further discu...

feed-grains soy-oilseeds wheat

Market Commentary

Soybean and grain futures prices were lower to open the overnight session, and losses grew as trading progressed into the early morning. Understandably, soybeans were the downside leader as they are most directly threatened by Chinese tariffs. They were down more than 20 cents when trading rece...

feed-grains soy-oilseeds wheat

Market Commentary

Corn and wheat opened lower Sunday with soybeans slightly higher. Everything was slightly lower by the time markets closed this morning, and that is how they opened the day session. Soybeans traded back and forth with small gains or losses through much of today. Wheat was moderately lower with...

feed-grains soy-oilseeds wheat

Market Commentary

There probably isn’t much point in talking about fundamental issues surrounding the grain and oilseed markets as very little has changed in that regard. The Black Sea region continues to suffer from adverse weather that is reducing yields and production there, and most of Australia is sti...

feed-grains soy-oilseeds wheat

Market Commentary

The rout continues. Grains and soy complex futures prices fell again overnight, and they continued to drop throughout the day session. Interestingly, corn and wheat were relatively weaker than soybeans even though the latter have a much bigger stake in the U.S./China tariff situation. The likel...

feed-grains soy-oilseeds wheat

Market Commentary

Grain and soy futures started out firmer on follow-through from yesterday’s post-report rally. However, that did not last long. The market’s attention soon returned to trade issues when Washington sources indicated the Trump administration is preparing to impose the long-discussed t...

feed-grains soy-oilseeds wheat

Market Commentary

The overnight market did not seem to know how to take the results of the Trump/Kim Jong Un meeting in Singapore. It ended with an announced agreement to denuclearize North Korea and for the U.S. to cease joint military exercises with South Korea. As always, the “devil is in the details,&r...

feed-grains soy-oilseeds wheat

Market Commentary

Markets were relatively quiet Sunday night, but corn and soybeans turned decidedly weaker today to finish with big losses. Funds started this week long everything except soyoil. They’ve had these positions for quite some time and evidently decided that today was the time to either get out...

feed-grains soy-oilseeds wheat

Market Commentary

Profit taking, good weather and zero technical support left the CBOT to trade lower today with only corn managing to close a few cents higher. With the ongoing trade issues and increasingly high odds of good U.S. corn and soybean crops again, bullish news is tough to come by. Brazil’s sec...

feed-grains soy-oilseeds wheat

Market Commentary

Overnight futures trading found prices around unchanged or slightly firmer except for wheat futures, which marched off to double-digit gains. There is more talk of deteriorating conditions for winter wheat in southern Russia, Ukraine and Kazakhstan with overly dry conditions also moving into Po...
