World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates

The statistics released in today’s WASDE — placing wheat and corn ending supplies higher while dropping export forecasts for those grains — did little to change traders’ minds about the status of the market’s supply and demand metrics. “All price-negative (supply/demand) fundamental numbers I’ve seen so far should be already factored-in for Feed-Grains given the recent price collapse,” says Mike Zuzolo of Global Commodity Analytics & Consulting. Some traders are simply happy that the WASDE didn’t introduce any market-shaking surprises. “I think as much as anything right now, there’s relief that it’s over — that we’re done with it,” says Dan Hueber of The Hueber Report.
