Floor Talk January 11, 2021

At the close:

At the close, the March corn futures settled 4¢ lower at $4.92. May corn futures are 3 1/2¢ lower at $4.94.

March soybean futures closed 2 1/4¢ lower at $13.72. May soybean futures ended 1 1/4¢ lower at $13.70 1/2.

March wheat futures closed 4¢ lower at $6.34 3/4.

March soymeal futures ended $7.20 short term higher at $446.80.


March soy oil futures closed 0.96 of a cent lower at 42.63¢ per pound.



In the outside markets, the NYMEX crude oil market is $0.19 per barrel lower (-0.36%) at $52.05. The U.S. dollar is higher, and the Dow Jones Industrials are 89 points lower (-0.29%) at 31,008 points.

 

Jack Scoville, PRICE Futures Group, says the markets dropped due to the focus put on tomorrow's USDA Reports.

“We are down a bit mostly on spec long liquidation before the reports tomorrow. Soybeans have recovered from the early lows and the chart patterns are still bullish. Wheat is struggling as is corn. Corn is not as bullish as beans, with Argentina allowing exports and the weak U.S. ethanol demand," Scoville says.

Spoiler
IMO it’s profit taking sell stops placed last week that got triggered on the overnight trade 
a positive when done ona Monday morning rather than selling Friday afternoon in fear of the weekend. 

But we will see.  Last report was ignored by markets.  Let’s see if usda can find relevance 

Interesting that this bullish move of late 2020 has yet to have a limit up day.  IMO that is a supply/demand driven move rather than a news/event driven move...   hopefully news has become irrelevant!

 Why do I see that spoiler tag.

Re: Floor Talk January 11, 2021

I’m guessing that there is massive profit taking ahead of the report tomorrow. Lowering the price will give many a chance to buy back at a lower price. IMO, this action is just coiling the spring to shoot these markets higher. With the Brazil delayed harvest of beans and the later planted corn there, it means we are the only game in town. Enjoy the ride.
