Quote of the Day
"Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgement that something else is more important than fear."
The next USDA report is Crop Production: December 12, 2017.
Market Comments for December 8, 2017
It was a steady, quite day as traders begin to prepare for the USDA Crop Production report next Tuesday. Corn saw support from uncertainty with South American production as Argentina’s corn planting is reported at 40%, versus 48% last year. There were two soybean sales to China today, 268K and 129K with deliveries in both 17/18 and 18/19. Additionally, there is a wetter outlook for Argentina in the extended forecast which put slight pressure on beans. Wheat movement was limited with Australia and Argentina both beginning their harvest seasons.
