The grain markets are mixed to marginally higher although soybeans are trading near the overnight lows. Technically, old crop soybeans closed below the 20 and 50 day moving averages on Monday, the first time since late Dec. Corn remains supported on rumors of Chinese buying interest although the marketplace still seeks confirmation 

Mato Grosso is now 5.6% harvested Deral reports 10% of Parana is now harvested. Brazilian soybean values continue to slide lower as harvest gears up and improving odds of US/China resolution of the trade war (which will be bearish to S. American values). 

The lack of key January USDA data has futures trading in narrowing ranges 

A trade delegation to be led by the Chinese vice Premier is scheduled to visit the US on January 30-31st. 

Weather: Brazil’s forecast is favorable to harvest this week while it may stress some crops that are still developing in the field

Another winter storm is expected this weekend. Snow covered much of the Midwest this past weekend and provided protection for the winter wheat crop 


Corn – Higher trade off the open on continued technical buying

Beans – Choppy to higher trade ahead of NOPA crush at 11:00 am

Have a great Tuesday!   Darren, Brady and David
