Grain Comments
Thursday December 8th

Corn finished the session down 4 cents on moderate spec fun profit taking.  Trade is cautious ahead of tomorrow's S/D report but no major surprises are expected.  Weekly export sales exceeded estimates and were pegged at 58.9 mln bu.  There seems to be more confidence that the USDA will increase the corn export forecast given the solid pace of 1st qtr sales.  On the charts, March corn found support at the 100 day MA and settled at a key pivot level.

They soybean complex saw a major drop in prices.  Factors include the positioning ahead of tomorrow's report and the attention givin to Trump's nominee for the head of the EPA.  The USDA reported better than expected weekly export sales of 53.7 mln bu. brining the past 4 weeks avg to 56 mln vs 45.8 during the same period last year.  Trade seems mixed on whether the USDA will adjust exports on tomorrows report.  Volatile price action is expected with the report tomorrow and thru the weekend with current SAM weather forecast.
