Mid Session Comment

The May USDA WASDE report is like Christmas: new crop data! Woo hoo! But fair to say that the market reaction was more like not believing to Santa Claus as it was welcomed with scepticism.

Morning Comment

USDA WASDE is always a day the fundamentals may matter… Or may not… Well, the April report is not usually the most exciting as it is the last one without the ‘new new’ crop, new crop data (crop 18/19) will come in the next WASDE.

Mid Session Comment

So this was a bit of a reversal of the retracement of the post report rally: quite difficult to understand put like this but in other words, roller coaster. Does this invalidate the retracement and validate the rally?

Morning Comment

EU markets were closed on Easter Monday but US markets were on and the big question was: will the rebound after the report be confirmed?

Good Friday Comment

When you have to leave early, on a report day,… Nothing will happen anyway… Then you come back the day after: D’ho! Right time to be hungover…

Mid Session Comment

Another soft day yesterday, risk off before the report. Still. Soybeans closed down -1.50 cent, Corn -0.50 cent, Wheat -3.50 cents in Chicago, -3.00 cents in Kansas and -3.75 cents in Minneapolis.

Morning Comment

Still waiting the quarterly report quite nervously and the only thing to do is risk-off, wait and see. So unsurprisingly, market ended softer with funds taking profits: they sold 1,000 lots of Corn, 3,500 lots of Soybeans and 3,000 lots of Wheat.

Morning Comment

After a strong start of the week, market closed collectively down in a very typical double sided session. Soybeans ended down -2.75 cents, Corn -3.25 cents, and Wheat -6.00 cents in Chicago, -11 cents in Kansas and -5.50 cents in Minneapolis

Mid Session Comment

Friday, Soybeans closed down -1.50 cent, Corn up +1.25 cent and the main movement was on Wheat: +4.50 cents in Chicago, +8.25 cents in Kansas and +9.75 cents in Minneapolis.

Morning Comment

Friday was a kind of déjà vu… Soybeans up +8.75 cents, Wheat down -11.00 cents in Chicago (-14.00 cents in Kansas, -3.75 cents in Minneapolis) and Corn stuck in the middle at -4.00 cents.
