Futures Market News and Commentary

Corn Market News and Commentary

Corn futures are trading 1 to 1 1/2 cents higher this morning. They ended the Thursday session with most contracts steady to a penny lower. Dec futures will expire today. Open interest was down to 371 contracts. The USDA Export Sales report showed 18/19 corn sales in the week of 12/6 at 903,164 MT. That was down 23.3% from last week but still 4.18% larger than the same week in 2017. Japan was the lead buyer of 608,400 MT, with 234,600 MT sold to Mexico. USDA reported 161,440 MT. Export shipments were down from the week prior at 952,132 MT, but still 37.83% above the same week a year ago.--provided by Brugler Marketing & Management
Soybeans Market News and Commentary

Soybean futures are currently 2 cents per bushel lower after settling with 12 to 13 cent losses in the front months on Thursday. Preliminary open interest dropped only 621 contracts, indicating rotation of ownership was the primary activity rather than long liquidation. March soy meal was down $4.10/ton, with soy oil 16 points lower. Soybeans showed some “buy the rumor, sell the fact” action following USDA confirmation of 1.13 MMT of export sales to China. The weekly Export Sales report (through December 6) indicated 792,269 MT of 18/19 soybeans were sold, within the range of pre-report estimates. That was down 11.1% from the week prior and 42.7% smaller than the same week in 2017. Shipments of soybeans totaled 1.147 MMT, 3.7% behind this week a year ago. Soybean meal sales totaled just 50,539 MT (a marketing year low), with soy oil at 5,928 MT.--provided by Brugler Marketing & Management
Wheat Market News and Commentary

Wheat futures are 1 to 4 cents lower across the three markets this morning, with Chicago SRW the weakest. They saw 8 to 9 1/2 cent gains in the front winter wheat contracts, with MPLS 3 to 5 1/4 cents higher. The moribund December contracts will expire today. Wheat weekly export sales totaled 754,054 MT, on the high side of estimates. That was a 5.9% jump from last week and 28.1% larger than a year ago. Unknown destinations purchased 210,600 MT, with Japan at 111,900 MT. More than half of the sales total was for HRW, at a MY high 418,161 MT and the largest weekly HRW sales total in 13 months. All wheat shipments were tallied at 490,666 MT. Japan bought 137,657 MT of wheat in the weekly MOA tender, with 60,248 MT from the US and the balance from Australia and Canada. Argentina’s harvest is nearly half done, with the Exchange trimming estimated production to 19.0 MMT from 19.2 MMT.--provided by Brugler Marketing & Management
