The WASDE was very bearish for soybeans and neutral to mildly bearish for corn and wheat. Soybean yields came in at 51.6 bpa and this resulted in a 785mm bushel new crop carryout. That is an 18.44 stocks/use ratio and we have not seen that big of a number since 2006-2007 when soybeans were trading in the $6 and $7 range.
The Sunday open could get ugly for soybeans. The WASDE was released after the Asian and European close. I do not like Friday WASDE reports for this reason. It has the potential to make the Sunday night open a mess. If the markets continue to sell off Sunday night and into Monday, we see support for Nov Soybeans at $8.30, Dec Corn $3.65, and Sept Chi Wheat $5.35.
Below are my updated Supply and Demand tables for Corn and Soybeans. The middle columns in yellow reflect the USDA report today. Then we make assumptions if the yields are a little higher and a little lower. Corn looks OK. Soybeans look like the new wheat!
