The April WASDE report was launched Friday. This report, the fifth of the calendar 12 months, is mostly used to reconcile the March Quarterly Shares Report with the World Agricultural Outlook Board’s steadiness sheet and supply any vital updates to their demand estimates.
The implication from corn’s shares report was that USDA would acknowledge the marginally tighter than anticipated shares in the type of extra demand on the steadiness sheet and presumably acknowledge the tempo of export commitments. This was actually the case, with export, ethanol and feed/residual all revised increased by a complete of 150mb, exports being half of the revision.
Quarterly soybean shares in March have been a bit increased than commerce estimates, so how the steadiness sheet could be impacted wasn’t fairly as clear since a big contingency of market contributors nonetheless believed USDA was too low on exports. However in true USDA kind, the steadiness sheet was managed to perfection maintaining shares unchanged. Elevate exports 30mb, drop crush 10mb, take 2mb off seed and 17mb off residual and voila…wait, there’s nonetheless 1mb left to account for. So return to final 12 months’s manufacturing and lift the yield a fraction of a bushel. Like I stated, good.
A month from now’s once we get a peek on the first official 2021/22 steadiness sheet for corn and soybeans. The 1.352bb corn carryout and 120mb soybean carryout will now be regarded as carry-in and are the inspiration of the 2021/22 steadiness sheet. The Planting Intentions acreage information can be plugged into new crop steadiness sheets together with trend-line yields and, most significantly, the primary demand evaluation for the 2021/22 advertising and marketing 12 months.
Whether or not you consider the acreage numbers or suppose we will develop a development yield is irrelevant for the Could report as a result of it’s what USDA will assume; each are “known” to the market and each can be handled in the approaching months as extra info is gathered. The demand quantity although, that’s one thing the commerce actually doesn’t know but and one of the best clues we now have are the numbers used from the February Outlook Board. Sadly they’re hardly ever in line with Could’s WASDE; that is the place the following shock might reside.
Earlier we talked about that we simply had the fifth report of the calendar 12 months. Beneath is a chart of Could Corn and there’s a sample that we wish to concentrate on. Whether or not it’s the day of, or in the case of the 2 quarterly reports, the day after, every report this 12 months has marked a swing increased on the chart. The Quarterly Report highs have been made the night time after the report following limit-up settlements.
That is vital as a result of it offers us an outlined sample for timing. Realizing the present sample revolving round crop reports, it might be affordable to count on one other pullback in the brief time period as planting accelerates. We will’t say for positive, however the sample suggests corn might rally once more into the Could WASDE report, and if it continues, one other main excessive could be anticipated on that report.
Most producers I converse with have been reasonably arms off on advertising and marketing new crop during the last a number of months, and for good purpose. February supplied glorious worth averages for crop insurance coverage. However we’re rapidly approaching the time the place highs are sometimes made for the advertising and marketing 12 months and, when you aren’t already, you’re about to get actually busy.
We’re about to embark on the interval when the actual advertising and marketing season begins, and we wish you to be prepared. The following few months can be emotional, erratic and a tough total surroundings to market grain. In the event you haven’t accomplished so, attempt to a minimum of kind a free philosophical advertising and marketing plan over the following few weeks, previous to the Could WASDE report on Could 12.

Issues hardly ever go in accordance with plan, nevertheless it’s a lot simpler to handle a plan with an outlined objective than it’s to handle emotion.
