Soybean Comment

Soybean futures fell slightly today, as there was likely soe profit taking following yesterday's rally. Soybean losses were limited as the USDA announced large exports which seemed to confirm the markets thoughts of pinned up demand. Monday’s low, $12.61, remains support for November. Private reports continue to indicate impressive yields, and there are concerns that when USDA does finally release a new production report in November, the market could get hammered.

Wheat Comment

Wheat prices moved higher today. News that Argentina's crop maybe worse than previously reported helped boost prices. With the government open again the market continues to wait for confirmation of improved exports. This news today has help push prices out of the sideways or downward pattern they have been in the last few days and helped prices break through the perceived $7 ceiling. Now remains a great time to price some 2014 wheat.

Corn Comment

Corn prices posted modest gains as the corn market seemed to follow wheat higher today. The market will have to Wait till next week to see if reported sales to China actually occurred. If the export report were to show stronger than reported exports we could see price briefly break resistance at around $4.50. However, large supplies will likely limit any major ralley. A move near $4.50 will likely provide one of the last pricing opportunities of the fall.

Rice Comment

Rice futures gave back yesterday's gains, but managed to close up on the week.. News from China that its rice production is likely to decline this year remains supportive for prices; however, large rice stockpiles across Asia, mostly in Thailand and Vietnam, continue to limit the upside potential of the market. November has weak support at $15.25.
