CHART OF THE DAY
The expiration of the Aug bean and meal contracts continued to be very exciting. Open interest was cut
sharply but the last day found 192 SQ and 64 SMQ remaining open. The spreads continued to gain
sharply with Q/U meal trading up $35 to $85 over. The N/Q meal only traded to a $42 inverse. The Q/U
beans traded to 198 over before setting back sharply. There were 2 small orders late in the day that
found no supporting bids. The N/Q beans only traded to 134 over. There were some 25 lot offers that
developed in the meal spreads prior to expiration that might hint at some meal deliveries? Did not see
them get that much sold? Cash remains very strong. Bean bids at eastern crushing plants moved up
another 5 to 10 cents today with Claypool up 40 to 270 over. That is a $300 inverse over new crop
beans for that area. The export bean basis was also firmer with Aug and FH Sep bean barges up 20
cents on the day.
The strength in front month beans and meal tended to support the flat price through the day. Will be
interesting to see what happens now that the Aug has expired. Trade is concerned the Sep does the
same thing the Aug did? There have been some Group 1 beans planted early just to take advantage of
this type of old crop inverse. Look for those beans  to be available starting LW Aug into FW Sep.
There are some issues developing in the balance of the winter wheat harvest and it is also showing in
the spring wheat crop. Idaho has had a lot of rain on harvest ready white wheat. Traders in No Dak are
talking about huge quality discounts developing. There are some indications that some elevators are
finding vomotoxins. Spring wheat has been taking a good part of the hard wheat milling demand and
this would change that quickly. May explain the firming hard wheat basis today. The settlement of the
grain handler strike at the PNW grain facilities was also expected to firm wheat basis levels. There have
been some firming freight issues this week also tied to better demand tied to that strike being settled?
China auction this week sold 507 TMT imported corn and 55 TMT domestic reserve corn. Takes total
sales since May to 19 MMT domestic and 3 MMT imported corn. Goal is 30 MMT total reserve sales.
China hog feeding margins have firmed to $8 to $32 per head. There was talk this week that the China
inspection service was looking at tightening inspections for pesticide and herbicide residue. There has
been a concern for some time that China would eventually find a way to slow sorghum imports. See the
export  sales  below.  China  domestic  corn  values  in  the  south  are  around  $461  to  $467  per  ton
equivalent. US corn landed with all duties paid would be priced around $286 a ton. This is incentive
enough to look for cheaper imports including some that might not have all the Gov approvals?
Export sales were lighter than some expected with the exception of new crop beans.
Wheat sales were 339 TMT or 12 mil bu. Was fairly evenly spread over all classes. Total sales
are  now  392  mil  bu  vs  518  last  year.  Buyers  were  Japan,  Mex,  Dom  Rep,  and  Japan. There  was
cancelation by Phil.


TRENDS:
Chi Sep bounced off a test of the old lows at 5.20. When this market chooses to trade into new lows,
looks to be a lot of down side room. Be ready to sell a small bounce if you did not today. Add to shorts
on a trade to 5.62.  Use a close over 5.72 to get out of any shorts. Look to sell WN on a test of 625 to
6.50 for new crop hedges. This may also be an opportunity to cross hedge corn. KC looks to be the
weaker trade still and is making a bad trade on daily and weekly charts that leave a big void in support
below the trade.
Corn  still  unable  to  build  any  momentum  but  is  still  capable  of  pushing  through  3.75  to  3.77  and
triggering buy stops. Rallies should have a hard time building any momentum. Sell a rally at 3.80 to
3.85.  Roll  short  Dec  corn  hedges  from  Dec  to  July  at  30  scale  out  to  33.  This  is  wider  than  the
recommendation yesterday. Full carry is around 36 to 37. Patience will be rewarded.
Nov beans developed a reversal with a rally off new lows. Could carry for a day or two---sell a test of
10.65 to 10.70. Still look for weakness to develop with this market aimed at a test of 10.00.  Basis has
firmed in domestic and export. Give the market a few more weeks to get new crop into cash channels
The soy oil tested the next down side counts to 33.50. Resistance will now show on a rally back to
35.00.  Dec meal refuses to break down but it should eventually. Assume the expiration of the Aug will
give some relief to the bears. Dec could be the leader to the down side if it manages a trade below
340.00. That would lead to a quick press to test 300.00. Sell the rally with a stop over 355.00.
