AgriVisor Morning MarketWatch

Monday, November 29, 2021
The majority of this week’s early trade will be spent getting positions in place ahead of month end. While many nearby contracts have already been rolled out, there is always a few that hold on to the last few days of the month. This will be most noticeable on the grains where the December contracts go into delivery. Tomorrow is first notice day on the December contracts which will impact corn and wheat more than other contracts. Month end positioning may be more noticeable than in recent months as the volume of managed money in commodities on a whole has been on the rise. Once we get past month end, we will start to see added interest on South American crops, mainly when harvest will start on Brazilian soybeans. There are thoughts this will be taking place in the next two weeks and soybeans may be available for export by mid to late December. The United States has had a build in export demand in the past week on soybeans, but this may bring an end to that activity. Trade will also be monitoring the remaining US bushels that need to be harvested. While harvest for the most part is complete, there are still regions with standing crops, and their quality is being heavily questioned. We will also continue to see market reaction to the new Covid strain and its impact on all markets.
