Corn and beans were modestly lower overnight as more rain is expected the next few days in the `I' states, though losses are starting to slow as prices are getting a bit too low for some. At least for now. The weather is favorable for this week but there are still some dry areas, mainly in the eastern Corn Belt. That said, 93% of Illinois has adequate or surplus soil moisture as of Aug. 2, meaning it's not going to be hard for plants to find water even if it turns off hot and dry, which forecasts are NOT calling for right now. In Missouri, they're getting too much rain as flash flood warnings have been issued for this morning.
Here's what happened overnight:
Brent Crude Oil = 1.3% higher.
West Texas Intermediate Crude Oil = 1.6% higher.
Dollar = down 0.3%.
Wall Street = U.S. stock futures slightly lower in overnight trading.
World Markets = Global stocks fall as bank earnings down.
Re: Floor Talk August 2
It very interesting, the prices for wheat drop at the Cbot and it the prices increase at the Euronext. The Funds hopes apparently for a record harvest furthermore. Cautious estimates estimate the harvest in France these are on 28.2 m. to 11 m. to fewer than expected. The harvest will turn out 3 m. to smaller than expected in Germany. A rise of the Russian harvest from 3 m. to will not be able to compensate for this. The next Wasde could surprise quite a lot of market participant.
