Re: Floor Talk December 8

An update about Brazil from my own agrosouth-news.com :

 

Brazil has sold nearly 26 percent of what it expects to have as an output of soybean during the 2014/2015, according to numbers revealed today by consultancy AgRural. The consultancy says that the highs in Chicago have influenced the sales in the first week of November and the trade was also supported by the devaluation of the Real against the U.S. dollar. Compared to the five previous years, the sales are delayed against an average of 39 percent of the crop at this week. AgRural also assesses that soybeans will have the biggest price decline in one decade. The Brazilian output is forecast at 94.9 million tons.

 

What do you guys think on that assessment in bold?

Re: Floor Talk December 8

Does this statement mean that soybeans have dropped in price already or that the price is expected to drop in the future?
