7/19/24:  Wheat futures have recovered roughly 30 cents apiece of the lows seen on Tuesday.  Corn for the week has essentially not changed with Dec futures still floating around 4.10 per bu.  Yesterday’s export report were positive for wheat and neutral corn.  Wheat exports were 578K MT near the upper end of the expected range.  HRW was 186K, HRS 205K and WW was 138K.  Corn combined old and new was 924K MT in line with expectations but nothing special.  Spring wheat futures have led the rally on increased export sales and little to no farmer engagement on cash sales.  The heat that rolled in 2 weeks ago is exactly what the crop needed, but now as we enter week 3 market is starting to get concerned with dryness through the plains and into Canada.  We don’t buy the dryness concerns for a second.  Spring wheat conditions and growing conditions are all pointing towards a phenomenal crop.  What we do buy is that the spring wheat farmer does not have to sell anything and has plenty of on farm storage to wait out better prices.  So, if exports can continue at a decent clip basis or futures will have to do some work to entice some spring wheat selling.  In general, for the next 2-3 months wheat rallies are meant to be sold if producers need cash.  Hard to paint a large, sustained rally in the short term.  Feels like the best price opportunities are October forward and even more so January forward. 

USDA Report 7/12/24:  Nearby corn carryout decreased by almost 145 million bu dropping the total carryout below 2 billion bu to 1.877 billion.  2024/25 carryout was left pretty much unchanged after an increase to corn production numbers.  The drop in carryout on the nearby is due to higher uses evenly split for feed and export.  That is a welcome sight for corn prices as it was below the lowest estimates in the trade and will be viewed as bullish.  Should and key word is should, mean that nearby bottoms on corn prices have been made.  Wheat ending stocks increased 133 million bu primarily in winter wheat stocks.  Increases in winter wheat production are valid given how low the USDA started and how great yields have been thus far through harvest.  First look at spring wheat production came in at 578 million bu higher than the highest market expectations.  Also makes sense given the near ideal growing conditions we have seen thus far.  SWW production was raised nominally from 226 million to 234 million.  Bearish wheat report but believe that was already priced into the market.  The corn report bullish surprise likely helps wheat out more so than the wheat report hurts it.  World carryout numbers on row crops were nominally unchanged.  Wheat was raised by 5 million metric tons.  Theme continued bullish/neutral row crops and bearish wheat.
