Jack Scoville, PRICE Futures Group vice-president, says that the soybean market is ignoring the weaker Real and concentrating on the good export sales report today.
“Plus, the market eyeing the Chinese delegation’s visit to Des Moines to sign purchases of soybeans. So, demand news has been supporting the beans today and now the recovery in the real is helping,” Scoville says.
The corn and wheat markets are weaker on the bad export news, but holding support, he says.
“I find that the corn yields are a little disappointing and I kind of want to buy it. So, I have been talking it up, and wheat too, mostly for chart-based reasons. Plus, the bear news in wheat is getting old to me. Been quiet today, but volumes are picking up.”

The Iowa Soybean Association announced Thursday Billions of dollars worth of Chinese agreements:
"More than a dozen Chinese soybean buyers agreed to purchase $5.3 billion worth of U.S. soybeans today in Des Moines. The 484-million-bushel order comes at a perfect time as Iowa farmers begin to harvest what’s expected to be a record crop, according to Grant Kimberley, Iowa Soybean Association (ISA) market development director.
Government estimates peg Iowa soybean production at 526 million bushel, up 2 percent from the August forecast. U.S. soybean production is forecast at 3.94 billion bushels, a near record," the ISA press release states.
Well, what do you think?
