Market Forces
This evening will bring the USDA WASDE June report as well as the quarterly stocks report. Traders are expecting a reduction in corn acreage which will be offset by increases in US wheat acreage. Soya beans acreage is expected to be a record (>82 million acres) and crop conditions are running very well with 72% in the Good/Excellent category –the highest rating at this point since 1986 and a reflection of the excellent growing conditions. Last week nearby soya beans showed a net gain on the week for the first time in 5 months. At the end of this quarter the following price changes occurred on the CBOT exchange during the quarter: CBOT wheat -16%, CBOT Corn -12%, CBOT soya beans -2.5%. European grain markets were quiet last week as despite the imminent harvest, farmers seem unwilling sellers and purchasers remain happy to wait for harvest pressure.
