AgriVisor Morning MarketWatch

 
Wednesday, November 10, 2021
Now that the monthly WASDE report is out of the way trade will quickly turn its attention back to the final US harvest reports for market direction. More importantly, trade will be focused on what is being done with new crop bushels. Heavy country movement took place at the start of harvest but has dropped off considerably in recent weeks. The question now is when the next wave of selling will take place, and this is unlikely to happen until after the first of the year. Farmers across the Corn Belt have little reason to market inventory at this time and are willing to wait for a market recovery. Trade will also start to focus more on the rapidly approaching South American soybean harvest. In as little as 4 to 6 weeks we could start to see new crop soybeans out of Brazil. Buyers are awaiting these as they are being offered at a sizable discount to those out of the United States. This does not mean production will no longer be a topic of market focus as there is still plenty of time for a production issue to develop. This is especially the case if the La Nina continues to build.
