USDA Grain Review: Grains Higher Off Bullish Reports

USDA Grain Review: Grains Higher Off Bullish Reports

21 January 2013

US - Compared to last week, grain and soybean bids traded higher as the markets got a boost early on from USDA's recent bullish report.

Wheat saw further support from dry and cooler weather in the Plains. Corn also saw spillover support from other grains. However, slow export demand and lower ethanol production limit the gains.

Soybeans saw gains from concerns of drier outlook for parts of South America and overnight export announcement. Soybean exports were very bullish with a total of 1,608,800 tonnes.

Corn export sales came in at 393,300 tonnes.

Wheat weekly exports sales were positive coming in above estimates at 536,200 tonnes.
