Corn continues to see slop progress in harvest with over 3 billion bushels still out. Beans have been in a difficult spot, many still question the USDA reports. Hong Kong-is this causing a slow down in getting a trade agreement in place. South America supplies are running small. Cattle futures see a lower trade & ASF spread & the market effects.

Nice to have green on the screen even with bad trade news.  Weekly crop progress report. Kansas Wheat condition.    the corn market analysis going into next week & beyond. Lower U.S. dollar, Global plantings.  Propane shortages continue with the need for harvest dry down.  Thoughts of exports.  Cattle is hitting some lofty levels.  Holiday pressure begins.

Turn Around Tuesday-sort of. Market deals with outside market pressure from lack of talks from China. Pushes coming to D.C. to move forward with USMCA. Harvest delays, planting progress in South America. Cattle market could continue to move higher in the weeks ahead. Worries of heavier cattle coming to market. Hogs have seen some struggles.

 

Cattle market makes another day of new highs except for December.  Will this strong trade continue?  Firmer cash market last week.  Rumors we might see the Holcomb KS plant open earlier.  Average weights are above a year ago.  Lower grain markets.  Year ago today March Corn 2nd largest crop…but still at the same price today.  How much did the USDA WASDE glitch effect the markets?

New lows in the corn on a Thursday as markets set up for the Friday WASDE Report. China continues to play a role in the markets both on the soybean & hog side of the trade. Demand for corn isn’t good, cattle crazy with export increases on the way.

 

Weather trying to help the last of the harvest…colder temperatures moving in will solidify fields.  Lower corn & soybeans.  Is the China Phase one being pushed off till December?  Odds are stronger it will be completed in 2019.  Friday WASDE report.  Brazil to get good rains. Propane shortages?  ASF-China has reopened the door to Canadian hogs & purchases from Europe-needing meat.

Is markets getting sick of the China situation.  Beans still see some strong demand & fresh Brazilian planting.  Is Brazil working to take away more markets from the United States?   Cattle market is setting up for some volatility in the markets.  Hogs undervalued on a global sector.
