Edwards Market Thoughts

8/12/20 7:40am

Markets are quiet this morning as the trade waits for the WASDE report to be released today. The USDA will release its first yield estimates of the 2020 fall harvest.

More than one million homes and businesses were without power on Tuesday after Monday’s Derecho storm.

Report day - USDA production and Supply Demand report at 11:00 this morning. The normal suspects of yield, acreage and demand get top billing. Interested to see if USDA makes any structural changes to China corn stocks with all the recent news. Bullish surprise?

China bought another 132K tonnes of US soybeans for the 20/21 crop year. Brings total to just over 12 mmt out of estimated 29 mmt.

On Tuesday, December 2020 corn futures last traded at 323 1/2. Over the last 5 years of daily price history of the De-cember corn contract, only 2% of days have ended the trad-ing session below 330 cents/bushel. The histogram below shows that Dec corn has traded between $3.80 and $3.90 in 21% of trading days. 49% of the days have been spent be-tween $3.70 and $4.00! Friday’s price was 320 3/4. That was the lowest price the Dec corn contract had ended the day at since August 31, 2016 (315 1/2 cents/bushel).

Letter to President Trump!


Tuesday, December 10, 2019

Time is running out, and we need to YOUR help TODAY.

America’s Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) is critical to revitalizing struggling farm economies, reducing our dependence on foreign oil, and protecting the climate. But Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) exemptions to oil companies have destroyed demand for billions of gallons of U.S. biofuels. President Trump vowed to restore lost gallons, but the current EPA proposal only accounts for a fraction of the demand destroyed by the agency’s unprecedented use of oil refinery waivers. We MUST demand action NOW before it’s too late.

Join us TODAY in calling on President Trump to take action now to reopen biofuel plants and revitalize markets for America’s farmers.

Thank you in advance for your continued support.
