Mike North, president Commodity Risk Management Group, says that there has been some recent spreading, soybeans vs. corn.
“The down day in corn invited some buyers back to soybeans. Against an increase in crop conditions, soybeans may now be able maintain technical momentum if further downside in corn is experienced,” North says.
Regarding the big news of the day, maybe in years, President Trump cutting a $12 billion to the agricultural sector for damage done by trade tariffs, North doesn’t see any price boost from it.
“The deal isn't done, so we are not likely to see much by way of immediate response.”
North adds, “Subsidies do not drive prices higher. Quite contrary, they give no signal to slow down production and long term may impact prices more negatively.”

Grains and beans were lower in overnight trading after the USDA unexpectedly left corn ratings unchanged and raised soybean ratings. Corn fell 4 cents, beans were down 4 cents and wheat lost 5-7 cents overnight. Export inspections for both corn and soybeans, however, were higher week-to-week while assessments of wheat were lower, according to the US Department of Agriculture. In weather news, the heat wave that had enveloped the Midwest for about the past week or so has finally dissipated, giving way to cooler temperatures and potentially some light rain in Nebraska and Iowa. Check out today's 3 Big Things for all the details.
