Thursday Morning Agricultural Analysis

by Dustin Weiner

Good morning!


The corn and soybean markets were both lower last night on very little news.  Helping cause the weakness was the updated PMI number out of China – showing the slowest growth (manufacturing) in 7 months.  Asian financial markets were of course under pressure after that news.


The USDA Ag Outlook forum starts today, they have released a “flash” look at what they will be talking about (almost in the form of ‘slides’ for a presentation) with the actual numbers being officially updated tomorrow.


Opening Calls

Corn steady to down 2 cents

Soybeans steady to down 5 cents
