Higher grain trade. Most commodities are higher. Increase Ukraine tension may be helping wheat. There could be some short covering in grains in front of the long holiday weekend.

Steve Freed is back Farm Progress show. Good crowd yesterday. Farmers are talking about good/big crops esp soybeans. Some SDS in Iowa soybeans. Farm machinery is getting bigger more efficient, grain storage getting bigger, stronger and safer. Big new news is data collection and drones. Sounds like the farmer does not want to sell corn. One analyst suggested to farmers either realize the numbers could be bearish and sell cash and buy calls or wait for something magical to rally prices. This could be early US freeze? Bad 2015 South Amercia crops? Or bad US 2015 weather.

Conference Call Recap
August 25, 2014

Comments and discussion items from the weekly conference call of the recommendations group of Marketing Partners Advisory include the following –

1. Fireworks are still being played out in the old crop soybean market as some demand points reach to find inventories for the remainder of the crop year. This will disappear at some point. All those who have traded this type of old crop tightness scenario know when the market discovers it has enough/one bushel too much, the market premium will go poof and the next stop will be new crop values. We believe this issue has been supportive of the old crop futures market from a spread consideration as well as supportive of the fund length which remains in the meal and oil futures market.
2. At this point we do not see a weather forecast which prompts concern of an early frost catching the late season development of US spring planted crops.
3. We continue to see evidence of grain handling locations immediately beyond the farm selling remaining old crop corn inventories clearing space for the new crop harvest and working to capture the old crop basis market premiums. This is a very traditional consideration especially when a large new crop is anticipated and when the market’s price structure will support an old crop basis market premium. We believe much of the remaining inventory represents delayed pricing ownership which producers to this point have been reluctant to price.
4. Ukraine, ISIS, Argentina, Hamas/Israel – Wild cards
5. Fund futures market length remain in meal, oil, and corn
6. Warm temperatures – Many areas in the US are experiencing the first real tranche of warm weather over the past week. Reports of temps in the 90 degree plus area have not been uncommon. However for many of these areas we do not sense the warmer temps are doing meaningful damage to late season development of spring planted crops. Having said this there are reports in portions of the Delta and western soybean growing areas of dry land late beans experiencing stress.
7. There remains evidence of strong new crop demand for the anticipated harvest inventories of corn and soybeans. Producer selling interest remains benign. Freight considerations in many areas remain problematic. Historically large new crop year inventories are still anticipated. The funds are not meaningfully short futures. Most (but not all) grains and oilseed new crop cash markets are presenting a carrying charge price structure. These are some of the primary pieces of the puzzle as one considers the task of price (basis and futures) in the coming weeks and months.

Corn spent the majority of the session before this
morning’s pause on the defensive with moderate to
heavier volumes than seen earlier this week. Once the
8:30 and 9:30 crowd joined in a noticeable pickup in
buying was seen. Spreaders continued their pre-FND
positioning along with those who treated today as month
end. The market f...

It was a weaker finish for the beans with a close at fresh
lows as weather forecast is a bit warmer and drier in week 2 of the
2-week outlook. Mid-day model was seen pushing warmer temps
in the 6 to 10 day outlook a little further west and north and has
reduced precip during the same period plus the 8 to 14 day for
the Delta. Heavy rains...

Hard Red Spring Wheat
8/27/2014 4:03:46 PM
US wheat futures offered a little bit of everything in choppy
two-sided trade. Early support triggered modest selling. Wheat
offers dried up after lower trade early in the day session. It felt
like all three wheat markets were looking for the path of least
resistance with little to go on. I suppose the issues in Ukraine
offered s...
