AgriVisor Morning MarketWatch

Wednesday, May 11, 2022
Much of today’s session will be spent getting final positions in place ahead of tomorrow’s monthly WASDE data. The most interest in this release will be on the new crop balance sheets for the United States. For the most part, trade is expecting to see tight stocks to use numbers across the board for the 2022/23 marketing year. The most interest will likely fall on corn where a smaller crop is already being forecast due to the loss of acreage. Trade will also show considerable interest in the global production numbers, with an emphasis on the Black Sea and South America. For the Black Sea trade will be closely watching to see not only what production adjustments are made to balance sheets, but also for what kind of exports we may see. The same is true for South America, mainly for Brazil. Several private analysts have lowered their Brazilian Safrinha crop estimates in recent weeks, and most are below the USDA. Even with reductions the Brazilian crop will be well above last year’s and open the door for more export trade. This is what trade is most interested in.
