On Monday, private exporters reported to the USDA export sales of 285,000 metric tons of soybeans for delivery to Mexico during the 2020/2021 marketing year.
The marketing year for soybeans began Sept. 1.
Al Kluis, Kluis Advisors, says that investors will be watching tomorrow's USDA's March Planting Intentions Report.
“The USDA report may show larger corn and soybean inventories than the trade is expecting. This report has been a bearish surprise in 4 of the last 5 years. Gasoline futures are down 5 cents and that is putting pressure on the corn market." Kluis told customers in a daily note.
Kluis added, "Will workers at the main grain exporting terminals of Argentina and Brazil refuse to go to work? A lot of export business will need to shift back to the US for corn, soybeans, and soybean meal. And what will happen with crude oil futures? The chart showed an inside week last week. Taking out last week's high is a positive sign for energy and commodity prices, but taking out the low is bearish for both."
What say you, shout it out,

"This report has been a bearish surprise in 4 of the last 5 years".
Never pitch to a batter that is hitting .800...................Just give him the intentional walk and put him on base.
Ok, I really can't tie this to grain marketing, but it's just an observation. Gosh, I miss baseball.
Re: Even in iowa
Me thinks you are smoking your used three day old socks.
Wheat has gotten to the point of being called "poverty grass" well oats are the cheat grass in the wheat.
Re: Even in iowa
Markets up and rallying again as grains trade lower. Tell us again how the grain traders follow the markets. Just like the weatherman wrong 90% of the time still getting paid... oil and fuel going lower is putting pressure on the corn? Ha, funny when it was 150$ a barrel corn was the same price as today.
Re: Even in iowa
You might have to put Your silver platter aside.
Granted corn use for E to China should be decent..
Corn in USA is feeding which will certainly pay up for corn... Much higher than E
E in the USA is all over but the crying now.
Oats, IF your in a decent oats grow area, grows 100 to 120 of no rust 36 to 39 Lb. Oats for very little expense.
Grand it only beings 3 50 to $4 straw makes another 200 to $400 per acre.
Oats though is arguably more work/excercise than corn LOL.
Maybe Your just 2 fat and govt dependant.
