Kim Anderson Summarizes Latest WASDE Report and How It May Impact Prices in the Grain Market

Thu, 12 Oct 2017 17:34:27 CDT

Kim Anderson Summarizes Latest WASDE Report and How It May Impact Prices in the Grain Market This week on SUNUP - Oklahoma Grain Market Economist Dr. Kim Anderson joins host Lyndall Stout again, this time talking about the latest World Agriculture Supply and Demand Estimates report, released on Thursday by the US Department of Agriculture.

According to Anderson, the grain market was more or less “in the tank” before the report was made public. After its release, he says the only place for markets to go up, is in soybeans.

Breaking down the report - US wheat ending stocks were expected by the market to come in at around 946 million bushels. They arrived officially higher than anticipated at 960 million. World ending stocks were expected at 9 billion 660 million bushels. The report instead pegged it at a record 9 billion 850 million.

In corn, US ending stocks were expected at 2 billion 290 million bushels, and were instead measured slightly higher at 2.34 billion. World ending stocks were near their expected level of 7.95 billion, coming in just below at 7.91 billion bushels.

The only good news in the report came from soybeans, Anderson said. The market overshot its expectation for US ending stocks at 477 million bushels, with the report putting them at 430 million. World ending stocks came in essentially as expected at 3.54 million.

In reaction, Anderson predicts soybeans will likely climb incrementally higher, while little hope is seen for the improvement for either wheat or corn prices.
