WEEKLY NATIONAL GRAIN MARKET REVIEW
Compared to last week, grains traded mostly lower for the week as positioning
ahead of USDA’s Friday’s Nov. 8th Production Report expecting to show record
corn harvest and better than expected soybean yields. Corn crop is expected to
be larger than expected with more than 14 billion bushels of production and
ending stocks also higher. Corn yields are also expected to be well above
September’s projection of 155.3 bpa. Soybean market came under pressure this
week as U.S. harvest advances to its completion are also expecting better yields
than expected. Both corn and soybeans look to have abundant supplies heading to
storage. Corn prices will be influenced by the strength of demand going forward
and rate of consumption as at this time feed demand look doesn’t look to
increase with a record low cattle inventory. Corn had bullish export sales of
1,718,600 mt (67.7 mb) all for 2013-2014. Soybeans also had very bullish export
