Agricharts Market Commentary

Fri Aug 17, 4:21PM CDT
Soybean futures rallied into the close to end the day with 4 to 5 cent losses, roughly 10 cents off their lows. Traders were taking money from this week’s 3.61% gains off the table ahead of the weekend. A little buying came late in the day on reports that the US and China are planning a roadmap to end the trade dispute by mid-November. That, of course, presumes that they will agree with each other’s proposals! Nearby soy meal was down $4.50/ton, with soy oil up 8 points. The large spec funds in soybean futures and options added another 2,641 contracts to their net short position as of 8/14. That took their net position to -58,924 contracts. Soybean export commitments are now lagging last year by 4.3%, slipping a little from last week. Compared to the USDA full year projection, they are 102% complete vs. the 104% normal pace. Actual exports are 94% of that number lagging average by 3%, with 4.718 MMT in unshipped sales remaining.Sep 18 Soybeans closed at $8.81 1/2, down 4 cents,Nov 18 Soybeans closed at $8.92 3/4, down 4 1/4 cents,Jan 19 Soybeans closed at $9.05, down 4 1/4 cents,May 19 Soybeans closed at $9.26, down 4 1/2 cents,Sep 18 Soybean Meal closed at $330.10, down $4.50,Sep 18 Soybean Oil closed at $28.23, up $0.08
