Grain Market Insight
Afternoon comments 10-15-18 December corn closed higher today, help by more fund technical buying. Weather forecast are mostly dry for the majority of the corn belt the next two weeks, however cool to cold temps will slow the drying process. Last week’s corn export inspections totaled 39.2 million bushels which was below trade estimates. November soybean surged higher today, helped by a mixed bag of bullish news. Too much rain and snow this past week have trade not only concerned about the quality of the unharvested soybeans but also concerned about higher production losses. Last week’s soybean export inspection is well above trade expectations with 42.5 million bushels inspected for loading, this included 2 cargoes labeled for China. December KC wheat rallied in the final hour to close modestly higher. Last week’s heavy rains that moved across the Southwestern plains have made winter wheat planting more difficult. Last week’s wheat export inspection totaled 16.6 million bushels, which was right in line with trade estimates. Closing cash bids corn and milo up 9 cents, soybeans 24 cents higher, and wheat closed the day 8 cents higher. Have a great evening.
