Some feel that Thursday’s US export sales were negative and offered resistance to soybean, soymeal and soyoil futures. South America soyoil export prices continue to drop with spread between US and SA low enough for SA exports to US. World soybean export prices continue to slide lower due to China slowdown in buying. US soybean export commit is up 11 pct versus last year but this is down versus 13 last week. Higher USD and lower across the board commodity prices could be in response of Global Central Banks tightening and threat of global recession and higher unemployment. India announced a switch to higher palmoil imports and lower soyoil.
US corn futures are lower and back near 20DMA near 6.80. Trade down to 200DMA near 6.65 could suggest a change in trend to lower. Trade reacted negatively to US weekly export sales. Commit is 50 pct of last year. Ukraine and South America export corn prices are below US. US Midwest temps are cool but should warm next week. 2 week forecast is dry which should aid harvest. NE IL corn crop is slowly maturing which suggest a late start to harvest. Most look for USDA October crop guess could be down from September but concern over lower export demand could offset the lower crop.
Wheat futures are also lower. Higher USD is not helping. Could be seeing some long liquidation into the weekend. Lower Black Sea wheat export prices offers resistance. Low US wheat export sales also raised concern about demand. US south plains and Argentina dryness offers support. Rains are forecast for W EU. E EU and Ukraine are dry. Concentrated Global Central Bank raising interest rates to fight inflation could push Global economies into a recession and increase unemployment and reduce food demand. US HRW is $80 above German and US SRW is $50 above French. Russia wheat export prices are $30 below French and $40 below Germany.
