Soybean Comment

Soybean futures were in the black today, but closed near the middle of the day’s trading range, down from double-digit gains charted early in the day. November completed a 50% retracement of the late summer gains on Monday, and looks headed for the 62% level of $12.57 in short order. The market has found some support at $12.63 for the time being, though. In one of the last reports issued before the shutdown, USDA reported some improvement in the soybean crop thanks to rains in late September. 53% of the crop is currently rated good to excellent. Nationwide, 11% of the crop has been harvested.

Wheat Comment

Wheat futures posted gains today, but December will likely face tough resistance near $7. Continued strength in the export market is providing support for prices. Today’s weaker dollar was also supportive.

Corn Comment

Corn futures ended the day unchanged to higher. The stocks report, released on Monday continues to weigh on the market, and harvest pressure is also a factor. Over next few days expect prices to continue to decline. It is likely that by the time the USDA releases its new supply and demand estimate corn prices will be between $4.25 and $4. While the prices should receive some relief next week with a reduction in acreage, the USDA yield estimates will be critical to tell us where prices will go as we head into the winter.

Memphis, TN Cotton and Tobacco Programs

Cotton Comment

Cotton futures traded in a narrow range and managed to close a bit higher. The market continues to consolidate near the middle of the 88 to 82 cent trading range that has contained the market for the better part of 2013. With ever weakening global fundamentals expect cotton prices to be very volatile as we head into harvest.

Rice Comment

Harvest pressure and the expiration of the farm bill continue to weigh on rice futures. November futures violated several levels of support this week and closed below the key $15 mark for the second day in a row. The next level of support is the February low of $14.77. USDA now says that 58% of the crop has been harvested nation-wide, while in Arkansas 57% has been harvested.

Cattle Comment

Cattle futures ended mixed. Packer margins are solidly in the red this morning, adding to the negative undertone. December futures are about $6 premium to cash prices, and that will limit the upside potential of the market.
