USDA Report

USDA Report released today at 11am and the reaction was quite the show.



Beans traveled from -12 back to +12 in less than 5 seconds.  The amount of volatility was neat to see.  The day started with beans down anticipating an acreage increase.  Turned out the opposite sending beans up to 9.81.  Bean stocks up 34% from March last year, beans acres up but still a new high.



Corn started this morning in the green anticipating unchanged acreage or a slight reduction in acres, but the report showed an increase in corn acres sending corn all the way down to a low of $3.79 ½.  Corn stocks up 11% from March last year/corn acres higher than expected.
