Grain Stocks Report Causes Market Some Indigestion, Kim Anderson Says

Grain Stocks Report Causes Market Some Indigestion, Kim Anderson Says
Grain markets tumbled Thursday following the USDA’s release of its Quarterly Stocks and Prospective Plantings reports. In his weekly preview to this Saturday’s SUNUP show, Kim Anderson, Oklahoma State University Grain Marketing Specialist, said the planted acreage was in line with pre-release estimates and did not have a big effect on markets. The effect of the Quarterly Stocks report, however, was another story.

“There’s where the negative prices came in. The stocks were a big surprise. They came in above expectations.”

Anderson said traders were expecting wheat to come in at 1.18 billion bushels. The actual number was 1.25 billion bushels. Corn stocks were expected to post 5 billion bushels. The actual number was 5.4 billion bushels. Soybeans came in at one billion on an expectation of 940 million bushels.

“All were significantly higher than the market expected and that’s why you saw corn limit down, wheat down 44 or 45 cents, soybeans down 40 to 45 cents. We’ve got more product, more commodity in the bin than we thought we did.” (You can hear more of the interview with Kim Anderson by clicking on the LISTEN BAR at the bottom of this story.)
