cid:<a href=image009.jpg@01CE6CE4.660D8B30“>

Overnight Highlights

  • Overnight markets have corn -2, soybeans -4 ½, wheat -3, crude oil +.89, dollar -.14, gold +9.0 and the Dow +56.
  • Lower grain markets this morning on harvest progress, above expectation soybean yield reports and technical resistance.
  • The Fed will be out with their decision on interest rates this afternoon. The market is betting that there won’t be an increase until December.
  • The US dollar continues its consolidation, caught between the threat of future higher interest rates increasing its value and the stronger economic signs in emerging markets strengthening their currencies relative to the dollar.
  • Palm oil futures were lower overnight following several days of higher trade. Look for stocks to continue to tighten going forward.
  • Decent rains are expected over northern Brazil to aid in their spring planting. The outlook over the next few months is for moderate weather in northern Brazil but dryer/warmer in southern Brazil and Argentina.
  • Yesterday funds bought 10,000 soybeans, 5,000 corn and 700 wheat.
