Grain Market Commentary

Market Commentary from the Northern Ag Network:
 2/17/2017  3:00 PM 

DTN reports:  

Wheat: March Chicago wheat closed down 6 3/4 cents Friday and was down 8 cents on the week, but prices are still near their highest level in five months and enjoying a well-deserved correction from the lows of 2016. Friday's 70-degree temperatures spread as far north as Nebraska and Iowa, which sound great for most of us but could be a problem for winter wheat later with plenty of freezing risk left in the season. The main benefit for winter wheat prices in 2017 has come as a significant rebound in the demand for cash wheat, but this is probably a good time to remember just how bearish the fundamentals are. With USDA expecting domestic ending wheat stocks of 1.14 billion bushels in 2016-17 or nearly half of last year's production, it remains difficult to convince noncommercial traders to buy wheat. Technically, the uptrend in March Chicago wheat continues for now. DTN's National SRW index closed at $4.10 Thursday, priced 37 cents below the March contract and down from its highest price in seven months. DTN's National HRW index closed at $3.67 and down from its highest price in seven months. Due to Presidents Day, U.S. grain futures will trade next at 7 p.m. CST on Monday, Feb. 20.

Corn:  March corn closed down 5 1/4 cents Friday and was down 6 1/4 cents on the week after a brief flirt with a new seven-month high earlier this week. Except for one brief January weekend of too much rain in Argentina, corn's bullish influence has come all from the demand side of the market, enjoying the trifecta of higher exports, record ethanol production and expanding livestock numbers. On Friday morning, USDA added news that 7.6 million bushels (194,112 metric tons) of U.S. corn were sold to Japan, 2.4 million bushels (60,000 mt) of which were for 2016-17. This good season of demand should have farther to go while U.S. prices remain attractive, but there is always the potential bearish threat of South America's larger harvests coming to market this summer. In spite of this week's decline, March corn remains in an uptrend. DTN's National Corn Index closed at $3.37 Thursday, priced 37 cents below the March contract and down from its highest price in seven months. In outside markets, the March U.S. dollar index is up 0.44 after the Conference Board's U.S. index of leading economic indicators increased 0.6% in January, more than was expected.
