Market Commentary: Export Sales Bolsters Corn Futures; Wheat Selloff Accelerates

Corn was the upside leader for the CBOT in a generally quiet day of post-Thanksgiving trading. The Export Sales report offered support for corn but did little for the other major ag commodities. Soybeans traded both sides of unchanged and ended slightly higher while wheat sold off sharply headi...

Market Commentary: Erase Part of Yesterday

As forewarned in yesterday’s commentary, “if there is an extension of the corridor agreement, expect U.S. wheat to tumble hard and fast.” The missile that hit Poland turned out to possibly be an errant output of Ukrainian air defense. Plus, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Serg...

Market Commentary: CBOT Lower on Fund Selling; Macro Markets Sharply Higher on CPI Data

The CBOT was sharply lower on Thursday as fund selling and position liquidation accelerated. The November WASDE did not create much of an additional bullish outlook and funds, which were already in a selling mood, decided to exit long positions. Soybeans were the downside leader on COVID-19 con...

WASDE Wheat

Market Commentary: WASDE Offers Few Surprises; Wheat Lower as Fund Sells; Cattle Rally Stalled

The November WASDE was largely in-line with expectations and USDA indeed raised the 2022 U.S. corn and soybean yields. Despite the larger crops, carry-out remains tight for both commodities and should be long-term supportive. Soybeans rallied for the day, as much because of news of 462 KMT of e...

Market Commentary: Corn, Wheat Sharply Lower in Pre-WASDE Trade; Soy Complex Weaker on Profit Taking

It’s Election Day in the U.S. and the day before the November WASDE. Markets tend to trade small ranges before the elections and the USDA’s report, but today’s trade was unusual as corn and wheat, rather than hunkering down, traded wide-ranging days with sharp losses. Fund sel...

Market Commentary: Soy Complex Rallies with Energy Markets; Corn, Wheat Firm in Late-Week Trade

The CBOT ended the week with gains across the board as stronger energy and palm oil markets supported sharp rallies in soyoil and soybeans. The soy complex has been the surprising leader of the CBOT during a week that, at its outset, looked like it would feature major rallies in wheat and corn...
