Soybean futures are trading mostly 7 cents lower this morning. They settled 1/2 to 1 cent higher on Wednesday. Front month soy meal was up $1.40/ton to support product value, with soy oil down 10 points. Palm oil futures hit a 4-week high on ideas of increased use for biodiesel but also expanded biodiesel exports. Analysts are estimating today’s USDA export sales report will show 0.6-1 MMT in 18/19 soybean export sales during the week of 10/11. Soy meal sales are seen at 150,000-450,000 MT, with soy oil at 5,000-25,000 MT in the first full week of the new MY. An auction of Chinese state reserves saw 97,292 MT of 2013 soybeans sold on Wednesday, totaling 96.05% of the amount offered.

Corn futures are currently 1 to 2 cents lower after settling 3/4 to 1 cent lower on Wednesday. Drier weather in the western Corn Belt is allowing harvest activity to pick up. The weekly EIA report indicated reduced corn consumption, with ethanol production for the week of 10/12 averaging 1.011 million barrels per day. That was down 29,000 bpd from the week prior and the lowest output since mid-April. Ethanol stocks were up another 109,000 barrels to 24.130 million barrels despite the reduced production. EPA also indicated that the E15 plan won’t be available for comment until February. Trade ideas for this morning’s USDA Export Sales report are in the 800,000 to 1.3 MMT range.

Wheat futures are 1 to 2 cents higher in the three markets this morning. They closed 4 to 9 lower across the three exchanges on Wednesday. Minneapolis spring wheat was the weakest. Preliminary open interest rose 1,670 contracts in the Chicago futures, indicating some new selling interest. Drier weather is allowing winter wheat planting to progress and a stronger US dollar was also an issue for the bulls. Trade estimates ahead of today’s Export Sales report are running 300,000-600,000 MT. Last week’s sales totaled 339,022 MT. A couple optional origin tenders saw South Korea purchase 60,000 MT and Jordan buying 60,000 MT from CHS.--provided by Brugler Marketing & Management (402) 289-2330
