Soybeans Futures Market News and Commentary


Soybean futures are currently 2 to 2 1/2 cents higher than on Monday. They ended Monday with 5 to 7 cents losses. The weekly Export Inspections report indicated that 922,094 MT were exported in the week that ended on December 6. That was down 11.84% from the prior week and 25.83% lower than last year. Spec funds in soybean futures and options slashed their CFTC net short position by 46,269 contracts on 12/4 to a net position of -17,593 contracts. The average trade guess for USDA soybean ending stocks is 945 million bushels, with most assuming USDA has no evidence of Chinese purchases to justify a change in exports. Brazil’s ABIOVE estimated the country’s 18/19 soybean crop at 120.9 MMT, 1.4 larger than the previous number. --provided by Brugler Marketing & Management
