Grain Market Commentary

Market Commentary from the Northern Ag Network:
11/16/2018  2:00 PM

DTN reports:

December soybean meal closed up $5.50 Friday, boosted by a healthy start of export sales commitments in early 2018-19. Soybeans and winter wheat ended modestly higher while corn and spring wheat were a little lower.

Wheat:

March K.C. wheat ended up 3 1/4 cents at $5.06 1/2 Friday and trimmed the week's loss to 2 3/4 cents. Before Friday, March K.C. futures prices had dribbled to new 2018 lows this week, but DTN's cash index of HRW wheat stayed firmly sideways -- a possible hint that local demand is doing well. Demand clues for wheat look even better in the futures spreads of Chicago and Minneapolis contracts where December contracts have gained significantly on March prices the past month. However, when we look at the export data, the proof of better demand is not showing up yet. USDA said last week's export sales and shipments of wheat totaled 16.1 mb and 9.7 mb respectively, bearish amounts that have wheat exports down 20% from a year ago. For now, the cash price trends for all three wheats are sideways with HRW wheat close to support. DTN's National HRW index closed at $4.52 Thursday, still above its July low of $4.50 and down 28 cents from the December contract. DTN's National SRW index closed at $4.75 Thursday, up from its July low of $4.51.

Corn:

December corn fell 2 3/4 cents to $3.64 3/4 Friday and was down a nickel on the week, chopping in a narrow, sideways pattern since early October. Except for snow in the Dakotas, Friday's weather map was mostly dry across the Corn Belt, and it is expected to remain that way for at least the next seven days. That is good news for those trying to finish harvest after encountering all sorts of obstacles this fall. At this time of year, exports typically become the main topic of conversation, and in that regard, corn is off to a good start. USDA said last week's export sales and shipments of corn totaled 35.1 million bushels (mb) and 43.8 mb respectively, putting total exports up 91% in 2018-19 from a year ago and commitments up 15% from a year ago -- both ahead of USDA's estimated pace. Seasonally, corn prices tend to rise gradually until early June, but the current trend has stalled out sideways. DTN's National Corn Index closed at $3.34 Thursday, staying above the September low and 33 cents below the December contract, showing gradual basis improvement. In outside markets, the December U.S. dollar index is down 0.44, falling back from Monday's new one-year high while a Brexit deal remains unsettled.
Trading volume was relatively light Monday, but all three wheat contracts posted double-digit gains, bouncing back from last week's four-day losing streak. Corn and soybeans were slightly higher with traders behaving cautiously ahead of Wednesday's WASDE report from USDA.

It was a risk-off day for commodities on Thursday, with energy, metals and grains under pressure, the latter still feeling the sting of Wednesday's bearish USDA report. This is despite the U.S. dollar index that reached two-week lows on weaker-than-expected inflation data. Hurricane Florence has been downgraded, which has eased concerns in the crude oil market. Equities are trading higher.

December contracts of Kansas City and Chicago wheat both posted double-digit gains Friday, reducing their losses for the week with help from excessively wet conditions in the U.S. and another reduction in Australia's wheat crop estimate. December corn and November soybeans also finished higher with ongoing harvest challenges still a concern.
