    Citizens Weekly Newsletter December 14, 2018

    By Angie Setzer

    Published Dec 14, 2018 

    · A week full of rumors, confirmation and headlines gave everyone a lot to talk about, but surprisingly left the markets somewhat directionless. · The week started with Reuters reporting China was looking to purchase 5-8 mmt of soybeans and that sales were just days away. President Trump agreed in an interview Tuesday saying China was in the market buying large amounts. 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... The weaker feed demand outlook is likely being driven by both the desire to include less protein in rations as a way to reduce soybean demand, and from the historic spread in African Swine Fever...

    Published Feb 22, 2019 

    · Continued Chinese negotiations and getting settled back into the routine of receiving regular USDA information were the highlights of this week’s trade. · The markets were closed Monday for President’s Day, but came back Tuesday to a very rough start. Ideas that perhaps US/Chinese negotiations weren’t going quite as well as perceived at the end of last week were only compounded by rumors African Swine Fever had been discovered in Canada. While the rumor of ASF being found in North America seems to have come from a trader misreading an article talking about what *would* happen if the disease were found, the market reaction was very real, moving sharply to the downside, breaking key support levels on its way. · However cooler heads prevailed allowing the soybean market at least to recover a good portion of its losses before the close, firming enough to poke above those important technical levels...

    · The moment we have all been waiting for is just a day away as the G20 summit kicks off and the world awaits the dinner meeting between President Xi and President Trump scheduled for Saturday.
