Well, the USA harvest seems to be all done and all the grain is in the bin. Now all we need to know is how much did we actually end up with. Was the USDA correct in its projections – do we just have a surplus or now a huge surplus? All questions for the market to argue over and for prices to react to. In most years we will have seen the low prices of the year and from here on in prices just move higher month by month to cover storage and finance costs. But then, there are always enough market factors that can be thrown in to keep things exciting until the next planting season in the US...........please click PDF to see more details

Grain markets in the US decided to try for a little rally on Friday and managed to push both soybeans and soymeal up into a positive price on the week. Even with the Friday rally corn and wheat prices were a little lower on the week. Corn prices ended up almost unchanged from the previous week as corn had a very quiet and uninteresting week. Some reports say that farmers weren’t selling as they would rather hold until after next week’s Thanksgiving holiday in the US.

So, this was the week for the November USDA WASDE Report and looking at the prices at the end of Friday it looks like much of a non-event. The USDA increased expected corn yields for this year crop which pushed corn futures prices down to the low of the year. Corn stocks are forecasted to be at the highest level in 30 years. None of which was good news for prices or for farmers.

It wasn’t the most exciting trading week this week for grain and oilseed but there were a couple of US weather rumors that got people a little excited – but just a little. There was quite a bit of talk about the US corn harvest falling behind but most experts seem to feel that this is not much of a problem as the farmers are working hard on the soybean harvest and leaving corn for a bit. As we all know from past years, the US farmer can catch up with the harvest levels in a very short period of time...........please click PDF to see more details
