December corn is up 7¢ and November soybeans are up 27¢.


CBOT wheat is up 9¢. KC wheat is up 8¢. Minneapolis what is up 14¢.


“Corn and soybean futures rebounded in early trading with soybean futures leading the way on strong gains in soy oil prices,” says The Brock Report.

Arlan Suderman, chief commodities economist with StoneX, says there is one week left until the Black Sea Grain Initiative is due to expire but Ukraine and Turkey are talking about a two-year extension.


“Yet, Russia doesn’t even appear interested in talking at this point, as the last of the ships at the ports are loading and preparing for departure, with no new ships entering the ports,” says Suderman.


“Look for Ukraine to shift to its ‘Plan B’ at some point soon, but it’s yet to be seen whether shippers will be willing to take the risk or not, and if so, at what pace. The primary question then will be, how will Russia respond?”


This Wednesday, July 12, USDA is releasing the July World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates (WASDE) report and Jeremy McCann, account manager with Farmer’s Keeper, says the report is “poised to create a lot of action in the market this week.”


“Traders and producers alike are largely expecting the USDA to drop yield estimates from their original 181 bushels per acre for corn and 52 bushels per acre for soybeans,” he says. “Although an adjustment to the yield estimates in July is rare, I think it’s fair to expect that the market will price in the forecasted decline over the next couple of days and react from there.”
