E-Visor Reports: Market Watch

Tuesday, July 13, 2021
As expected, the US corn crop rating improved 1% last week and now stands at 65% Good to Excellent. The US corn crop is also 26% silking and 3% in the dough stage. The soybean crop rating was unchanged on the week at 59% Good/Excellent. A reported 10% of the soybean crop has now set pods. The spring wheat rating remains poor at just 16% Good to Excellent. Winter wheat harvest is starting to advance and stands at 59% complete. There is little doubt we will continue to see reaction to yesterday’s WASDE numbers in today’s trade. On soybeans it is becoming apparent the USDA is unwilling to publish smaller ending stocks numbers than what we currently have. Our recent declines in demand indicate price rationing has taken effect, so steady ending stocks estimates are not surprising. The same case can be made in corn where stocks to use is slowly climbing. The USDA lowered its new crop price forecasts on corn and soybeans yesterday which further indicates price rationing has taken place. The USDA did cut production and ending stocks on wheat which was not a surprise either. Now that this data has been released trade will again focus on daily weather forecasts and crop reports for price discovery.
