Talk of Soymeal Imports Pressures Beans

Grains are drifting lower as trade chatter looks for Argentine meal to hit U.S. shores

Talk of Soymeal Imports Pressures Beans

Grain prices are moving lower in Chicago, with corn down 4, soybeans off 10 and Chicago wheat down 4 cents. We are past first notice day for November 2014 soybean contracts, please begin trading the January contract to avoid any issues with delivery.


Soymeal futures are trading down a percent in the early going on trade rumors that Argentine soymeal is U.S. bound following last week’s huge rally in price. Harvest is the last time we would expect soymeal imports, but the sharply inverted U.S. futures market has given domestic users the incentive to look abroad.


Northern Brazil received precipitation over the weekend but the trade remains concerns about output moving forward. Rainfall totals have been 30% behind normal during October, delaying planting and forcing some producers to replant. The 7 day outlook has turned a bit more dry over the weekend – we will continue to monitor the pace of planting in Mato Grasso. 


Several private analysts will be releasing their updated crop projections ahead of the November 10th USDA report. FC Stone will be out today and Informa will give their updated numbers later in the week. Grains have traded sharply higher over the last month with very little consideration for current 2014/15 ending stock estimates.

Grains Drifting Lower as Dollar Index Surges Higher

Grains are down slightly this morning while outside markets are very busy. Dollar sharply up while Crude and Gold off a percent or more.

Corn, soybeans, and wheat are continuing to drift lower in the overnight session. Coming into the morning trade break corn is down 2, wheat is off 5 cents, and soybeans are down 5 cents. Today is first notice day for November 14 futures, please roll all soybean positions to the January contract.


Soymeal is drifting lower to unchanged this morning in a relatively quiet trade. The CME Group has raised soymeal margins by 25% for speculators and hedgers effective today, leading some trading to believe a further retracement will be seen. Higher margins force traders to liquidate open positions or re-margin existing positions. Many longs in the market may opt to liquidate their positions after a huge run up since early October.


Beneficial rains are expected to hit Brazil today through Wednesday in the key growing state of Mato Grasso. These rains are much needed as dryness over the last 30 days has forced many producers to replant soybeans. The forecast has turned slightly dryer for the 2 week forecast, and we will continue to monitor any changes. Argentina corn is off to a great start as the key growing state of Cordoba has received a surplus of moisture over the last 30 days. 


The dollar index is surging another leg high this morning, trading up nearly a percent in the early going. FED comments on Wednesday got the rally started as the Federal Reserve announced plans to end their 6 year bond buying program. Gold and Crude Oil are both trading substantially lower, gold down 3% while crude is off a percent and a half.
