cmdty Insider - Soybeans Market Commentary

Wed Sep 26, 7:21AM CDT
Soybean futures are currently 4 to 5 cents higher after also ending the Turnaround Tuesday session with most contracts 4 to 5 cents in the green. Preliminary open interest rose 5,973 contracts. Nearby soy meal was up $1.50/ton, while soy oil saw 11-point gains. A 24-hour strike closed ports in Argentina on Tuesday. Both Brazil and Argentina are planning to import US beans for crushers to replace what was shipped to China. Friday’s Grain Stocks report, released at 11 a.m. CDT, is expected to show 398 mbu of soybean stocks on September 1, based on trade surveys. That is a buildup of 96 mbu from last year and 3 higher than the Sept S&D table. As of Sunday, all of the 18 reported states were matching or ahead of their normal harvest pace except Arkansas. Soybean condition ratings in NE were down 3 points, with NC seeing the largest loss following Hurricane Florence, down 34.
