AgriVisor Morning MarketWatch

Thursday, May 30, 2019
The grains and soybeans rebounded in the overnight session with the grains leading the way. This is not surprising as that is where most profit taking surfaced in yesterday’s session. South Korea bought a cargo of feed wheat and soy meal overnight which is also supportive. Long-range weather models indicate a more normal pattern setting up for the Corn Belt, but until then, numerous rain events are predicted. Trade is also starting to pay more attention to Australian weather where drought conditions are expanding and impacting wheat production. Early month end position squaring is starting to take place which could hinder trade for the remainder of the week.
