Market Comments

Traders were expecting a bearish USDA Supply and Demand report. USDA did not disappoint with figures that led corn, soybean and wheat futures to set new contract lows this week. USDA released larger-than-expected forecasts for U.S. corn and soybean production and for domestic and global wheat supplies. While most traders had expected larger corn and soybean crop numbers, USDA's 14.4 billion bushels for corn and 3.91 billion for soybeans topped most trade estimates. Most traders believe that corn and soybean prices should continue to drift lower into the fall if actual harvest yields are equal or better than USDA September estimates. Sunflower prices ended the week mixed at down 5 cents to up 90 cents for September delivery. New crop prices fared better gaining 10 to 25 cents per cwt. The ADM plant in Goodland, KS is offering 2015 new crop NuSun and High Oleic cash and Act of God (AOG) contracts. The plant will also offer daily cash prices for both crops. More 2015 new crop contracts are expected to roll out in the coming months. With the new USDA numbers out, weather conditions and the weekly USDA crop progress report will be the main market movers.
