Floor Talk September 8

After the close:

U.S. weekly ethanol production is down from previous weeks.

 

According to EIA data analyzed by the Renewable Fuels Association, ethanol production averaged 998,000 barrels per day (b/d)—or 41.92 million gallons daily. That is down 25,000 b/d from the week before and the lowest in five weeks. The four-week average for ethanol production stood at 1.020 million b/d for an annualized rate of 15.64 billion gallons.

Soybeans were again higher overnight on concerns about the non-stop rain, the flooding that's going on from Kansas to northern Illinois and the spread of fungal diseases. Normally a nice finishing rain would be welcome but right now the precipitation just needs to go away and let fields dry out and river levels decline. Unfortunately, MDA Information Services and Commodity Weather Group, both ag forecasters, have said they expect rain to continue through at least the next 10 days. 

 

Here's what happened overnight:

 

Brent Crude Oil = 1.1% higher.
West Texas Intermediate Crude Oil = 1.5% higher.

Dollar = down 0.5%.

Wall Street = U.S. stock futures little changed in overnight trading. 
World Markets = Global stocks higher as European Central Bank leaves rates unchanged.

Roaring tiger is absolutely correct. I'd love a 2" rain. Doing a tile project and the subsoil is so hard the mini-ex struggles digging taps.

Re: Floor Talk September 8

I thought you guys were getting the tail end of some of this stuff that's been flooding everybody out in Indiana and Illinois. I take it that's not the case?
