AgriVisor Morning MarketWatch

Thursday, October 07, 2021
We are starting to see more positioning take place ahead of next week’s updated WASDE numbers that will be released on Tuesday, the 12th. These will include the data from the September stocks report, so an increase in soybean carryout is already expected. This has already pressured the soy complex, but that does not mean next week’s balance sheets will not apply more. Yields across the United States are coming in better than expected in many regions, even those that suffered heavy weather losses in the Western Corn Belt. Some of these areas are reporting record yields, especially on soybeans. This is generating ideas that we could see a higher production figure next week. The same scenario is unfolding in corn and a larger crop would not be a surprise. At the same time, US export demand has not been as great in recent weeks as it was prior in the calendar year. Corn sales remain ahead of last year but have dropped off considerably in recent weeks. Soybean demand remains lackluster as best as we are still seeing soybean sales out of Brazil. The combination of these factors could easily give us higher stocks to use on both crops.
