This suggest US 2020/21soybean carryout could remain near USDA 395 mil bu. USDA could leave World 2020/21 soybean end stocks near 96 mmt. USDA is expected to increase weekly US soybean crop ratings.
Corn futures traded higher. Uncertain US Midwest 2 week weather outlook gave mixed inputs to futures. Funds have covered a portion of their record et corn futures and option short but may need to see more damaging US Midwest weather to cover more. Slow US Export demand and concern increase in US virus cases could slow US domestic food and fuel demand limited the upside in prices. US farmer has also been and active seller of cash on the recent rally.
