Morning Comments January 4, 2019

Opening calls:

Corn:  penny higher

Beans:  3 -4 higher


Good morning!


Grains trading higher this morning after a stronger day yesterday. The markets find some technical support as fundamental news remains light. Traders are waiting patiently as the government shutdown continues to delay important report. At this point, the January supply & demand report is likely to be delayed along with export reports. Until this gets resolved, there is no real way to confirm sales to China. Globally, Brazil has cut their 2018/19 bean production by almost 4 million tons. Precipitation continues in South America in the areas where they don’t need it. Outside markets also supportive to grains this morning with the U.S. dollar trading lower and crude oil slightly higher.


Really light news right now until we get some government reports. Have a great weekend!
