Trade feedback

PRICE Futures Group, Jack Scoville says the USDA released a wild report and the uptrend reversed.

“The stock report was largely consistent with trade assumptions, slightly lower in corn and slightly larger in wheat with soybean dead estimates. Not much there. But the prospective plantings report was wild, far below trade assumptions for corn, pulses, and wheat,” Scoville said. Says.

“I’m not sure why the U.S. farmer doesn’t go to the fencepost, but he didn’t have a plan when he was surveyed. I’m not sure I believe the numbers, but that’s what we’ve got and we have to ride with them. Be limited now and maybe lock up today. We’ll be higher tomorrow. Let’s go down, just go back later. The uptrend is back, “says Scoville.

Jason Rouge of US Commodities says today’s USDA report tells the story of tight stocks.

“Today’s USDA No. Adding back premium with grain slap after reports of all important acres and stocks. The acreage is less than the expected acreage for both maize and soybeans. Rouge says the need for larger acres is needed in stocks at the bottom of multiple years, with a margin of error going into the spring, ”Roose says.

“Spring weather will be closely watched and acres will be added with higher prices, and exports will remain competitive with strong deals,” Roose said.
