Soybean Comment

Soybean prices closed mixed as nearby contract fell and new crop prices strengthened. USDA forecast for tighter soybean supplies in 2013/14 seems to match what traders expect will happen this fall. With lower acreage and late planted beans dragging down yields supplies will likely be through out the 2013/14 season. Tight beans supplies, as opposed to corn, may move to the forefront and begin to drive the markets as we head into the winter.

Wheat Comment

Wheat prices fell today as corn and soybean markets were unable to hold onto gains after yesterdays USDA report. Wheat posted a new yearly low and remains just above support at $6.25. If this support is broken expect prices to fall lower and test next level of support at $6.07.

Corn Comment

Corn market tumbled today posting news lows for the 2013 crop. It appears the market is not convinced that USDA forecast matches reality. Rains across some of the corn belt on Sunday are expected to help this delayed crop further develop. Many private estimates maintain this years corn crop will top 160 bu/acre. With today's downturn it's unlikely prices will reach objectives at around $4.75; instead we should hope prices will hold support near $4.30.

Memphis, TN Cotton and Tobacco Programs

Cotton Comment

Cotton prices continue to strengthen as yesterdays crop progress report shows continued decline in the quality of this years crop. Prices continue to move into the low 90's offering farmers an excellent opportunity to market this years crop. While prices have broken out of this long established trading range, strength will likely be difficult to maintain as global fundamentals remain weak.

Rice Comment

Rice prices posted modest gains today, as prices were able to remain above the $15 level. A bearish report from USDA continues to put pressure on this market as global supplies are forecast to remain at record levels. While U.S. rice supplies are forecast to tighten in 2013/14, global supplies remain ample to meet demand. Rice prices have support at $15.

Livestock markets closed mostly higher. Declining corn prices allowed feeder cattle prices to rebound, and strong cash prices remain supportive of live cattle. Sent from my iPad
