One analyst says, "Corn and wheat are trading higher on profit taking by short held positions after Thursdays low was the accumulation of a 75 cent sell off from last weeks high on wheat and 50 cents on corn . its Friday and tradrers are cutting risk not wanting to leave profits on the table over the weekend not knowing what overseas markets will do. Beans are firmer on follow thru from Thursdays bullish weekly export sales report that put the December exports of beans equal to all of November."

At 7:30am:

The National Oilseed Processors Association (NOPA) released its monthly soybean crush report Friday:

 

NOPA November crush rate of 157.30 million bushels is on the low end of the trade's expectations of 157-158 million bushels. However, this is just below the 2009 record of 160 million bushels. So, you can see why folks are nervous that the U.S. is chewing through soybean supplies too quickly. We are exporting and crushing at record levels. Overall, the news is bullish for today's market.

 

Mike

------------------

At 7:05am:

Early calls:  Corn 1-2 cents higher, soybeans 10-12 cents higher and wheat 3-5 cents higher

 

Trackers:
Overnight grain, soybean markets=Trading higher.
Crude Oil=$0.85 per barrel higher.
Dollar=Lower.
Wall Street=Seen opening higher off of news from China that its economy is growing. Fiscal cliff concerns could trump investors thoughts.

World=Asia/Pacific stocks are mixed, and Europe's stocks are lower.

$15.00 Soybeans is a skip and a jump away.  Do we stay above $15 or do we sell off end of the day?

giolucas,

 

NOPA soybean crush numbers will be out any minute. The report is expected to support soybeans today.
