Overnight Highlights

  • Overnight markets have corn -1, soybeans -3, wheat -6-7, crude oil -.67, dollar +.75, gold -6.0 and the Dow +3.
  • Lower markets this morning as the market continues to anticipate large incoming fall crop yields.
  • Harvest should be picking up this week in the South and some isolated parts of Illinois. The trade will be tuned into early actual yield report chatter. Last year the first corn harvest progress updated came in the second week of September.
  • Trade is expecting unchanged for crop conditions this afternoon.
  • The annual Chinese buying delegation will be in the US this week. Look for the typical large soybean deal.
  • China’s recent buying frenzy slowed a bit last week.
  • CFTC data showed Managed Money as of Tuesday had covered some of their short corn position, had added to their long soybean position and slightly reduced their wheat short position. This does not include late week selling activity.
  • Funds were estimated sellers Friday of some 15,000 corn, 6,000 soybeans and 7,000 wheat.
  • Midwest rains are forecast to abate later this week before returning again in the extended forecast.
