--Sal Gilbertie, Teucrium Trading, says that today’s report is significant because it confirms record global demand for both corn and soybeans. "Total global usage for corn and soybeans is at record highs and growing, and total corn demand in the United States is also at a record high and growing. Clearly lower prices are supporting increasing consumption around the globe for all grains, which puts pressure on Mother Nature to continue with the current near-perfect growing conditions. Market participants may already be anticipating good yields and adequate supplies, and any change in yield projections to the downside could have a dramatic effect on prices. With consumption steady and growing, the market focus will now become almost entirely supply oriented; all eyes are on the weather from this point forward. Traders will be watching for adequate moisture and heat in the Midwestern U.S., and El Nino watchers will keep a close eye on any potential drought conditions in the Southern Hemisphere, particularly as it relates to Australian wheat production.
--Jack Scoville, PRICE Futures Group vic-president, says that the report shows estimates that are in-line with expectations. "USDA indicated better demand for soybeans as expected, not so for corn and wheat as expected. The wheat production might be a little high, but USDA needs to see field yields. And, so far, they do not have a lot to work with. Nothing really game changing here, we got quarterly stocks and acreage coming and then the weather. I think the July estimates will be much more interesting.
World data does not seem all that wild, either. USDA mostly left Brazil and Argentina unchanged. I think we will be trading weather again and yield reports from wheat very quickly now."
--Scott Shellady, says, "As far as ending stocks...corn in line, beans lighter than expected at 475 vs expected 482.6 and wheat heavier at 814 vs expected 793.59 waiting to see market reaction."

Re: Floor Talk June 10
According to Sal: "which puts pressure on Mother Nature to continue with the current near-perfect growing conditions".
These kind of statements are always fun. Demonstrates a real lack of understanding or a real blindness to reality. Too much rain is just as bad as not enough, especially for corn in June. Highly variable rainfall (look at the map the last 8 weeks, week by week) is not near perfect for Sal's information. What is he basing that comment on? Crop ratings...which are bizarrely meaningless in early June? I think it is fair to look into this a little further. Planting and emergence dates are pretty average. Of course, I realize that marketeye won't respond to me because I am sometimes critical of him
We all know that growing conditions have little to do with prices, but Sal just exposed himself as...hmmm....."under-informed" shall we say. Why can't he just admit that half the country is in pretty good shape, and half is pretty beat up, hardly "near perfect"?
Good to know the market it trading perfect though, at some point it really limits the downside.
Re: Floor Talk June 10
We expect marketeye to ask the critical questions, and If he does, the results are well hidden...
But in his defense the folks he quotes are not folks who listen to a second question from anybody....... They just present the prepared statements.
If planting and emergence were timely, why are there so many acres out here struggling with the normal wheat harvest heat of 95+, because the corn is 3-4 inches high and has no roots.................. This summer should end wet and cool...... It would be a fitting end--not being able to get it dried down...
