Pete Meyer, Senior Director of PIRA Energy Group, says he doesn’t trust either yesterday’s action or today’s.
"That’s not to say that I’m bullish by any stretch of the imagination but rather had these sell-offs occurred a month from now, during the heart of harvest, it would make much more sense. While some headline grabbers continue to press their yields higher based on improving weekly conditions, we’ve also seen reductions from some analysts that make sense. After being on my 8th Pro Farmer Crop Tour a few weeks back, I’m just below 170 bpa as a national yield for corn and just above 46 bpa in soybeans. Some of these numbers that are being bantered around are impossible to get to in my opinion."
