Grain Market Report


Markets 9:10am 11/24/14

Dec 14 Corn -3 @ 3.69 ¾

Jan 15 Beans -5 @ 10.34

 

Market Journal – This is a great segment offered up by CVA’s ProEdge, this markets update is worth a lookhttp://youtu.be/eaZhAtmWP3M

 

Corn – December corn traded in a sideways fashion last week,

bouncing of off the 100 day moving average several times before closing mid-range on Friday.

Friday’s close saw December corn lose 7 cents in the last minute of trade to settle at $3.72 ¾.

This resulted in a 9 cent loss for the week.  The negative tone continued at the open this morning.

 

Basis – Corn basis values have strengthened across the region last week as

processors gear up for Thanksgiving this week. Producers have been comfortable with their

crop in the bin, which has been a major contributor to the recent strength. If you have HTA’s or

other hedged positions, plan to take advantage of the strength and move some corn in

December. The railroad has been performing adequately as of late, so there has been some good basis to be had at CVA’s shuttle loaders.

 

Recommendations – Strong basis values are telling us to move corn right now

regardless if we like the price. If you would like to take advantage of the recent strength and

still keep your price open, feel free to call to discuss options for doing so.

 

Soybeans – Soybean performance last week was largely

technical in nature as long liquidation was a feature early in the week before some

buying surfaced late. The charts felt choppy the week before, showing some bearish

divergence on the charts as new highs were made. The $10.00 mark held for

January futures last week, supported by some speculative buyers willing to defend

the level. On the week, January futures picked up 16 ½ cents to settle at $10.39.

Export sales also seen as disappointing for last week.

 

NOPA – NOPA crush numbers were out for October on Monday. Member plants

reported that 158.0 mbu of soybeans were crushed in October when the market was

expecting a number closer to 151.0 mbu. The October figure was the highest October crush

number in the recent data set. So far this marketing year member plants have crushed

258.0 mbu, 8.0 mbu behind last year’s pace. For the year, the USDA expects crush demand

to be up 73 mbu, so a sustained pace will be needed.

 

Basis – Soybean basis values saw some strength this week as cash soybeans

descended below $10.00 at processor locations. That figure is certainly a magic number for

many producers, so weaker prices on the CBOT should encourage some basis tightness for

the time being. If you have hedged positions pay attention to some of the recent strength and

be ready to cash it in.

 

Recommendations – Place offers for cash soybeans vs January futures.  I am thinking north of $10.50, but don’t get greedy.

That should put cash in the upper $9’s at most locations. With as volatile as the soybean trade is, the value of offers is quite apparent.

 

Thanksgiving Fun - a family in American can celebrate Thanksgiving with a classic turkey feast for less than $50 and at a “time cost” of only 2.39 hours of work for one person means that we really have a lot to be thankful for on Thanksgiving: an abundance of cheap, affordable food. Compared to 1986, the inflation-adjusted cost of a turkey dinner today is 21% cheaper, and 26% cheaper measured in the “time cost” for the average worker. Relative to our income and relative to the cost of food in the past, food in America has never been more affordable than it is today.  Read more here: http://www.aei.org/publication/something-thankful-real-cost-thanksgiving-dinner-1-3-cheaper-last-year-21-cheaper-1986/

Defective Airbag Recall Notice


WASHINGTON, D.C. – The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration urges owners of certain Toyota, Honda, Mazda, BMW, Nissan, Mitsubishi, Subaru, Chrysler, Ford and General Motors vehicles to act immediately on recall notices to replace defective Takata airbags. Over seven million vehicles are involved in these recalls, which have occurred as far back as 18 months ago and as recently as Monday. The message comes with urgency, especially for owners of vehicles affected by regional recalls in the following areas: Florida, Puerto Rico, limited areas near the Gulf of Mexico in Texas, Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia, and Louisiana, as well as Guam, Saipan, American Samoa, Virgin Islands and Hawaii.

“Responding to these recalls, whether old or new, is essential to personal safety and it will help aid our ongoing investigation into Takata airbags and what appears to be a problem related to extended exposure to consistently high humidity and temperatures. However, we’re leaving no stone unturned in our aggressive pursuit to track down the full geographic scope of this issue,” said NHTSA Deputy Administrator David Friedman.

Consumers that are uncertain whether their vehicle is impacted by the Takata recalls, or any other recall, can contact their manufacturer’s website to search, by their vehicle identification number (VIN) to confirm whether their individual vehicle has an open recall that needs to be addressed. Owners that have been contacted by their manufacturer should contact their dealer’s service department and make arrangements for the repair. In addition, consumers can sign up for NHTSA recall alerts, which go out before recall letters are mailed by the manufacturers to the affected owners.

7.8 Million Affected U.S. Vehicles, by Manufacturer, Impacted by CY 2013 and 2014 Recalls Involving Takata Airbags

Note: The list below corrects the list that accompanied our October 20 advisory, which incorrectly included certain vehicles. The numbers cited for potentially affected vehicles below are subject to change and adjustment because there may be cases of vehicles being counted more than once. Owners should check their VIN periodically as manufacturers continue to add VINs to the database. Once owner recall notices are available, owners can retrieve a copy from SaferCar.gov, or will receive one by U.S. mail and are advised to carefully follow the enclosed instructions.

The Great American Smokeout


The American Cancer Society marks the Great American Smokeout on the third Thursday of November each year by encouraging smokers to use the date to make a plan to quit, or to plan in advance and quit smoking that day. By quitting — even for one day — smokers will be taking an important step towards a healthier life – one that can lead to reducing cancer risk.

Tobacco use remains the single largest preventable cause of disease and premature death in the US, yet about 42 million Americans still smoke cigarettes — a bit under 1 in every 5 adults. As of 2012, there were also 13.4 million cigar smokers in the US, and 2.3 million who smoke tobacco in pipes — other dangerous and addictive forms of tobacco.
