YTD inspections through last Thursday are nearly 13% behind the record pace set in 2014/15. The average pre-WASDE trade guess for 15/16 ending stocks is 449 mbu (Jan: 440 mbu). The same survey of trade analysts projects (on average) that world ending stocks will be 79.09 MMT (Jan 79.28 MMT). Brazilian bean production is expected to slip by 0.8 MMT from the Jan estimate to 99.2 MMT, while Argentinean bean production is expected to rise to 57.3 MMT, up 0.3 MMT from the January report. The USDA report will be released tomorrow at 11 CST.
