USDA announces fresh exports Friday. China bought 180,000 mt of U.S. soybeans for 2012-13 delivery.
The corn market has jumped 21 cents, followin the bullish USDA Report. Wheat is up 18 cents and soybeans are up 2 cents.
Corn Stocks=988 million bushels vs. 1.126 billion bu. expected
Soybean Stocks=169 million 132 million bu. expected
Wheat Stocks=2.10 billion bu. vs. 2.28 bill. bu. expected
Whoa! A bullish corn number, don't you think? Wow!!!
One analyst says, "Surprisingly bearish to the soybeans at 169 million bushels. Corn was bullish and may stop the bleeding to the downside. Wheat also friendly. Thankfully, they found more soybeans because China is buying more than we have to sell, so this is just some more that we can sell. Should put in some sort of bottom on the corn with this report."
Sal Gilbertie, Teucrium Trading, INC. says demand for crops seems to be the highlight of today’s report. "The soybean numbers are most significant, disappearance last quarter indicates healthy demand at the end of the 2012 crop year, even with historically record high prices. Soybean stocks at September 1 were slightly higher than the trade expected, but demand is clearly unabated and the soybean balance sheet is very tight. Corn shows less September 1 stocks than expected, which seems to indicate strong demand because the enormous amount of bushels harvested early seem to have gone into the supply chain rather than into storage. This would indicate continued healthy demand for corn as prices decline from their highs. Clearly the negative effects of the drought on supplies are going to remain with us for the foreseeable future."
Early calls: Subject to the USDA's Quarterly Stocks Report Friday to be released at 7:30am CT. Overnight, corn is trading 7 cents lower, soybeans up 1, and wheat down 2 cents.
Overnight grain, soybean markets=Trading mostly ower.
Crude Oil=$0.14 per barrel higher.
Wall Street=Seen opening lower, as investors 'window dress' taking profit-taking at the end of the quarter.
World=Asia/Pacific stocks higher and Europe's stocks are lower.

thats like saying better than expected..................COMPARED TO WHAT................some days I dont know how people blow their own nose, considering they can't see past it...........
i thought course grain demand was dead............interesting to think..........how many 2012 acres of harvested grain are in that number...........I am betting between the batwing and August start dates...........A BUNCH.........
take away.........if you are in a deficient area with a short crop............BASIS will EXPLODE.........course when end users are calling during harvest to source corn its pretty obvious............
well everyone have a good weekend.......going to be nice out again..........might put some wheat in the ground...........hard to remember without pulling out some records, but its been at least 20 years, maybe more............

Roaring, I just talked to one broker who said that's a big question mark, whether this number counts residual stocks as well. Possibly accounts for a less dramatic effect on the soybean futures?

Its a stocks report they count whats ever in the bins Sept 1. It used to be nobody gave a $H.t about it. Still have a small crop and it has given the grain buyers a chance to buy corn 1.4o off highs. Beans over 2dollars off high.
