USDA-SJ: Weekly National Grain Market Review

St. Joseph, MO - Fri Nov 10, 2017 - USDA-MO Dept of Ag Market News


   Compared to last week, cash bids for corn and soybeans were mixed, with wheat
trading mostly higher and sorghum trading mostly lower.  The next round of WASDE
reports were released yesterday giving traders an updated look at yield and crop
estimates as of November 9th.  This years corn crop projections increased to a
potential record breaking 14.578 billion bushels, and US ending corn stocks were
increased from 2.340 to 2.487 billion bushels.  These are both bearish projections
for the corn market which closed 6 3/4 cents lower for the December contract
yesterday.  Soybean projections were mostly neutral with new estimates putting US
ending stocks 5 million bushels lower at 425 million bushels, and a slightly lower
crop estimate of 4.425 billion bushels.  Though soybean projections were mostly flat,
bearish influnce from the corn market pressured soybeans to close 13 1/2 cents lower
on the January contract.  The wheat market did gain some support yesterday from a
decrease in US ending stocks from 960 million bushels to 935 million bushels,
influenced by an increase in wheat export estimates. Last week's export sales totaled
93.1 million bushels of corn, 42.6 million bushels of soybeans and 28.7 million
bushels of wheat, bearish figures for all three commodities.  Wheat was higher, from
5 to 35 cents higher.  Corn was mixed, from 13 cents lower to 8 cents higher.
