Corn (March)


Yesterday’s Close:  March corn futures finished yesterday’s session down ¾ of a cent, trading in a range of 3 ¼ cents. 


Fundamentals:  Weekly export inspections came in at 744,000 metric tons, below the range of estimates from 850,000-1,150,000 metric tons.  The U.S. dollar posted has been on its longest winning streak in the past two years.  That win streak may be coming to an end as the market is retreating off of technical resistance from December.  Trade talks are set to continue this week, with headlines suggesting that the March 1st deadline could be pushed back.

Soybeans (March)


Yesterday’s Close:  March bean futures finished yesterday’s session down 10 ¾ cents, trading in a range of 15 ¼ cents.


Fundamentals:  Soybeans were under pressure yesterday but have stabilized in the early morning trade as trade talks with China resume and the tariff deadline may be pushed back.  Expect headlines through the remainder of the week to keep the market choppy.  Yesterday’s weekly export inspections report came in at 1,060,000 metric tons, within the range of estimates from 600,000-1,200,000 metric tons.

Wheat (March)


Yesterday’s Close:  March wheat futures finished yesterday’s session up ¼ of a cent, trading in a range of 7 cents.


Fundamentals:  All in all, wheat was constructive yesterday.  The market recovered to finish positive, despite the dollar staging its longest rally in two years.  Wheat also overcame headwind from weakness in corn and beans.  The market is softer in the early morning trade, but we will see how the floor opens before putting too much weight into the low volume trade.  Weekly export inspections yesterday morning came in at 562,000 metric tons, this was towards the top end of the expected range from 400,000-600,000 metric tons.
