    Published Jun 22, 2018 

    This Week In Agriculture:A Mixed Bag of Information from the Week that Was: June 22, 2018· Another volatile week as traders work to decipher what a continued trade war could mean for commodities going forward and the old adage “rain makes grain” is put to the test. When the closing bell rang for the week we saw December corn down nearly 5 cents, December wheat down 12 and November soybeans down 14. · The week started relatively weak as heat that had built throughout the bulk of the Corn Belt over the weekend was expected to give way to cooler temperatures coupled with extreme moisture in areas of the Belt that had seen beneficial rainfall the week before. With corn ratings nationally sitting at 78% good to excellent—a near record high and bean ratings at 73% the common idea was rain would continue to benefit production... · Talk of a much anticipated ethanol solution hit newswires this week as well...

    This Week in Agriculture:A Mixed Bag of Information from the Week that Was: February 1st, 2019· The reopening of the government and Chinese trade conversations dominated headlines this week. With the former playing catch up and the latter loaded with fodder for both buyers and sellers. · A short-term resolution to the government shutdown was announced late last Friday as lawmakers put aside their differences, funding the government through the 15th of February. The funding allowed offices closed for well over a month to reopen, this included the USDA, CFTC and others, also allowing for those employees working without pay throughout the shutdown to receive those delayed paychecks... · While news from the talks was relatively quiet Wednesday, rumors, confirmation and revisions dominated the news cycle after the close on Thursday...

    Published Dec 7, 2018 

    This Week in Agriculture:The Trade Truce Edition: December 7, 2018· The much anticipated meeting between President Trump and Chinese President Xi did not fail to produce excitement upon its conclusion. Newswires lit up late Saturday and into Sunday with emerging details, the most important of which was the initial agreement to give a 90 day negotiation period, during which no additional tariffs would take place. This includes a freeze on the expected increase in tariffs on 200 billion worth of goods from 10% currently in place to 25% slated for January 1st... · Early news reports seem to indicate the arrest had just taken place and was fresh news, roiling the markets, but as details began to emerge, we discovered that the arrest was not in fact as recent as first indicated and had actually happened on December 1st, the day of the Trump/Xi meeting... · At the same time it will be interesting to see if the USDA makes any adjustments to Chinese demand in light of recent news, as a Shanghai based market intelligence firm indicated China soy imports could come in 10 million metric tonne higher than current USDA projections...

    Excitement continued to build into Wednesday as additional news reports indicated $180 million worth of sales had been finalized, with subsequent reports indicating even more buying throughout the day... Unfortunately, as is usually the case, reality didn’t quite match expectations and the board failed to rally on the news. · While many were confused as to why the news of Chinese purchases were not immediately bullish to the market, it is important to remember a couple things... Many of the folks that were interested in buying that news already had prior to any type of confirmation... · In other Chinese news, soy processors there are losing nearly $50/tonne...

    Published Mar 1, 2019 

    · Momentum trading ruled direction for the most part this week as traders in both the wheat and corn complex tried their best to call a bottom and failed. Meanwhile on the bean side of things we saw additional China/US trade headlines and rumors push the market hard in both directions. · After the close last Friday Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue was quoted as saying China had agreed to purchase another 10 mmt of soybeans, in addition to the 10 mmt they had already committed to buy. This allowed a bit of a pop in beans before traders started to question whether or not this commitment was immediate or would be spread out over several years... · In other news we saw interim EPA head Andrew Wheeler confirmed this week...

    This Week in AgricultureA Mixed Bag of Information from the Week that Was: September 14, 2018· Updated USDA numbers, continued trade negotiations, African Swine Fever and a hurricane captured most of the market headlines this week... · Even in the face of a more than burdensome USDA outlook the soybean market was actually able to hold on to some slight gains into the close on Wednesday as news broke that the US and China would sit down for another round of high level trade talks... This of course would be positive news for the market and will be watched very closely in the days and weeks ahead. · News also broke late week that Canada is prepared to compromise when it comes to dairy imports from the US—one of the major sticking points in NAFTA negotiations. Many traders met this news with excitement; however late Thursday Mexican officials said they are prepared to move forward bilaterally making many wonder if we were still light years away from a Canadian solution...

    Published Sep 21, 2018 

    This Week in AgricultureA Mixed Bag of Information from the Week that Was: September 21, 2018· An interesting week of trade as it appears most of the bearishness that came from last week’s USDA updated supply and demand numbers has moved to the sidelines. Potential changes to Chinese trade policy across the board, ideas of soybean arbitrage on a global scale and talk of inflationary pressure were seen as mostly price supportive, or at the very least the desire to move to new lows has dissipated for now. · It is interesting to see a shift in Chinese attitude or at the very least an attempt to change how they are viewed by their trading partners... · Obviously with the drought Argentina experienced the fact they are buying US beans is not news, however the idea we could see arbitrage take place with China knowingly purchasing US soys through an intermediary could indicate talk a couple weeks ago that suppliers would rather ‘run out of beans’ than purchase US supplies was simply smoke and mirrors... · In other trade news it appears as though the United States and Mexico will move forward with their bilateral trade agreement...

    Published Oct 19, 2018 

    · Calling this week’s trade a ‘roller coaster ride’ would likely be putting it mildly as traders and farmers work to recover from price whiplash. A trio of what could be viewed as bullish news stories for soybeans stoked by some interesting trade rumors created a great start to the week before the realization not much has actually changed from a fundamental perspective sent us back to around levels seen at last Friday’s close. · The week started with residual excitement from last week’s idea that trade discussions would take place at next month’s G20 summit between President Trump and Chinese President Xi... Somehow this exciting news became even more exciting when a rumor of major Chinese purchases being inked rippled throughout the trade... · In other news harvest pace was allowed to pick back up mid-week with a good amount of progress being made until some light rains fell across portions of the Corn Belt Friday...

    This Week In Agriculture:A Mixed Bag of Information from the Week that Was: August 3, 2018· Production adjustments, trade developments and rumors from a Facebook post all had an important role in this week’s trade. At the close we saw corn up 8, November beans 19 higher, with September wheat up 28. · The debate over yield outlook is starting to pick up in intensity ahead of next Friday’s USDA updated supply and demand outlook... Though the report was unfounded it was picked up by major news outlets and reported prompting wheat to explode 30 cents higher before the Ukraine ag minister made it clear no such decision had been made... When it comes to new crop demand has not fallen nearly as fast as news reports would indicate either...

    This Week in AgricultureA Mixed Bag of Information from the Week that Was: January 18, 2019· With the government shutdown looking to continue on indefinitely traders are adjusting to life with minimal information flowing, focusing more on cash grain values, freight movement, export inspections and the rumor mill to generate direction. · Export inspections this week came in above the high side of expectations, and much higher than levels seen throughout the holidays, but below levels needed to meet current USDA estimates. CIF (export bids) values have shown some strength this week for corn and wheat likely indicating buying interest increased, especially with the recent move lower in futures. Soybean values have remained relatively steady, though traders are aware bids have returned to the Pacific Northwest after most buyers had nothing posted throughout harvest... · The second was a bit more interesting as a major newspaper reported Treasury Secretary Mnuchin claims the US will roll back all of the import tariffs it has place on China thus far in an expression of goodwill...

    Sat in on a Zoom Q&A session yesterday with Secretary Vilsack on this topic. I like the "build back better" attitude.
