TRENDS Mostly lower CU, Down 6, SQ, Up 4, WU, Down 12

July 20, 2020 08:53 AM

HIGHLIGHTS

·      HIGHLIGHTS

·       TRENDS—Mostly lower: CU, -$.0250; SQ, +$.04; WU, -$.0350; KWU, -$.0150. 

·       What caught my eye:   The Army Corps of Engineers says the Illinois River’s LaGrange Lock will open about 2 weeks later than initially scheduled, which could further complicate 1st quarter logistics as C/SB exports are likely to exceed 1.2 bbu, up 40% vs LY

·       Global equities are little changed.  Asia—Mostly higher:  Nikkei, +0.09%; Shanghai, +3.11%; Hang Seng, -0.12%; EUROPE: Mixed—DAX, +0.42%; FTSE, -0.45%; CAC, unch.  WALL STREET: Futures, mostly weaker --DOW, -54; S&P, -7.25; NAS, +0.50.  EXTERNALS: Aug crude, -$0.41@ $40.18Gold: +$2.70 $1,812; Sep $ Index, -.049 @ 95.840

·       T-storm Weather®: weekend rain was as expected with heavy totals in ND & northwest MN, and mixed totals in IL, IN, IA, OH.  The central U.S will be seasonable to cool over the next few days as surface-level high pressure moves across northern areas, leaving maximums in the 70s-80s and minimums in the 50s-60s.  Scattered thunderstorms affect the central U.S. through Wed.-Thu.  The location and timing of rains are difficult to determine, but 0.50” to 1.50” is probable for most corn, soybeans, & spring wheat

  • CU, dn $.0250 @ $3.3050; CZ, dn $.03 @ $3.3675.  Possible additional export business fuels fund buying, 5 K                              
  • SQ, up $.04 @ $9.02; SX, up $.0425 @ $8.9825.  Funds: Bot 3 K SB, 7 SBO, sold 1 SBM.  Board crush: $0.61 (Q/Q), +1; LY, $0.98
  • WU, dn $.0350 @ $5.3125; WZ, dn $.0350 @ $5.37.  The funds were even in Friday’s trade     

CORN/SORGHUM

·       U.S. corn Good/Excellent crop condition ratings in today’s USDA Crop Progress report are projected to be 67-69%, compared to 69% last week and 57% last year

·       T-storm Weather®: sharp warming develops from west to east Thu.-Fri. across the U.S. Corn Belt, leaving temps considerably above normal; highs in mid-90s & lows in mid-70s for 3-5 days.  Best rain chances in the Dakotas & MN 

·       Export Inspections released at 10 am CDT; Corn, 39.6 mbu needed; 35.5 last week.  Milo—6.7 needed; 2.8 last week

·       T-storm Weather®: dryness remains a concerns for corn in parts of Ukraine, through coolness dominates most areas
