E-Visor Reports: Market Watch

 
Thursday, June 11, 2020
The majority of today’s trade will focus on the monthly supply and demand data from the USDA. For the most part, trade is expecting few changes from the May data. With planting still taking place it will be hard to see much change, although a favorable start to the growing season from the weather side may cause slight increases to yield estimates. That said, any change to acres could easily negate any of this potential support. When it comes to acres the most interest may be on last year’s crops as acres in North Dakota have been resurveyed for this release. Last month we had a 29 million bu reduction to the 2019/20 crop from lost acres in other states. It would not be surprising to see a similar decrease this month. Ending stocks are expected to be little changed on old crop contracts, and slight increases are being predicted for new crop corn and soybeans. Chinese demand will be key in these numbers, especially on soybeans. While soybean exports have perked up recently, they still trail the amount needed to reach our current projections. A few projections are floating around we could see old crop soybean demand cut another 100 million bu. While possible, this seems a little aggressive given the time we have left to make sales. From the global side, very few changes are expected to ending stocks across the board. Once this data is released, trade will be quick to turn its attention back to daily export demand and crop reports. We will also start to see more attention shift towards the USDA reports that will be released at the end of the month, those being the quarterly stocks and revised plantings estimates.
