Soybean Comment

Soybean prices continued their move higher posting gains of more than 10-cents for new crop contracts. With the uncertainty about this year’s crop in the U.S. the market continues to prepare for the worst as stocks could get tighter. With soybean prices remaining strong the potential is there for South America to increase their soybean acres this winter. September soybeans are poised to test resistance at $12.75.

Wheat Comment

Wheat prices traded mixed today from 2-cents up to 2-cents down. While reports out of Brazil indicate they have last a significant share of this year’s wheat crop, it is still unclear how much of the market will go to the U.S. A lot depends on the size of the Argentine crop and what their export policies will be.

Memphis, TN Cotton and Tobacco Programs

Cotton Comment

Cotton prices slowed down today and closed down slightly across the board. Despite strength in outside markets, cotton has moved into oversold territory signaling time for some profit taking in this market. December cotton remains at very good prices and the likelihood for continued gains are likely slim. Producers should look at prices today as good opportunity to finish out this year’s crop. When prices fall they are likely to move back into the 82 to 87-cent range.
