Weekly Market Recap

The final week of September 2021 showed the corn and wheat prices increasing while the soybean prices fell significantly. One major reason for the change in futures prices was the USDA Grain Stocks report on Thursday at noon. The analysts’ average estimate of the stocks for soybeans was significantly lower than the USDA, meaning that there is a greater supply of soybeans than anticipated, which drove the price down. Corn and wheat rose slightly because the stock numbers were reasonably close to the numbers found in the USDA report.

Important Marketing Information

The World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates report from the USDA on September 10th, 2021 showed numbers that were all higher than the Analysts’ Average Estimates for the U.S. Production and Ending Stocks with both corn and soybeans. All of those reported numbers were within the Estimate Range. These numbers indicate that there may be a higher than anticipated supply this fall.
