Commentary

Grain Commentary By Jeff Thatcher

Thursday February 25th
 
Corn: -4 ½ to -2 ¾
 
The corn market traded both sides of unchanged through the session before ending with a modest loss.  March futures were off just over 4 cents on the day after trading in an 18-cent range.  New crop values lost nearly 3 cents after making a contract high during the overnight trade.  A disappointing export report along with spillover pressure helped to weigh on today’s corn trade.  Weekly sales were reported at just 17.8 million bushels, a marketing year low.  Total commitments are still very strong at over 2.3 billion bushels which is well over double last year’s sales pace. 
 
Soybeans: -17 ¾ to -7 ½
   
Soybeans had an erratic session that saw them make new highs overnight only to end the day moderately lower.  Nearby futures lost nearly 18 cents after trading in a range of over 50 cents.  Soybean spreads were weaker on the day with new crop values off just 7 cents.  However, that was 22 cents below the overnight high.  Disappointing sales along with a wetter Argentine weather forecast pressured the soybean market today.  Weekly sales came in below estimates at just 6.2 million bushels.  This was also a marketing year low.  This week’s activity did include net cancellations of Chinese bookings.
