Anderson Says Markets Settle Following Recent USDA Crop Report Release

Anderson Says Markets Settle Following Recent USDA Crop Report Release
Recent crop reports issued by the USDA have had about a week to work on the markets and, at least initially, says OSU Extension Grain Marketing Specialist Kim Anderson, the markets were somewhat perplexed.

“The market reaction to the corn and wheat reports was surprise. The soybean report was just as expected. Initial reaction to the corn, the estimate of lower-than-expected stocks, both in-storage and ending stocks, was higher corn prices. Wheat with the lower planted acres in Oklahoma-five percent lower planted acres, in Kansas seven percent, higher planted acres in Colorado by about 600,000 acres-was a surprise to the market and lowered prices.”

Anderson says some analysts are questioning the planted acres figures and think the actual number of planted acres is in line with what the trade is expecting. He says that means wheat markets will probably trade in a sideways pattern in the foreseeable future and corn will probably follow the same pattern, but may grind a little lower.
