Re: Floor Talk October 6
Our counterparts in Brazil are reporting that delayed planting (due to dryness) of this year's soybean crops are causing concerns. In their own words:
"Planting in Mato Grosso are late. Producers who signed contracts for delivery of soybeans in January and February are worried. The delay in planting soy decreases the crop window, and it can affect the second crop of corn. However, there is a good forecast of rain after October 8. The rains are expected to remain with well distributed volumes. In Parana, the climatic conditions are favorable and planting goes normally. This is all the effect of El Niño..."
Do you think the market will trade Brazil's weather soon?
Re: Floor Talk October 6
Market eye, thanks for the Cmex oil price closing price. In regards to Brazil, I feel the markets are waiting for the Friday report. If it shows 400 million or less in 15/16 U.S.carryout, then the fireworks could start if the moisture is taken out of the northern Brazil forecast. The price action after the report could be interesting.
