Morning Comments 09/30

Grain and soy traders were probably squaring positions again Monday night. The USDA will release its quarterly Grain Stocks and Small Grain Summary reports at 11:00 AM (CDT) this morning, which could greatly affect prices since the stated total will represent the beginning stocks figure for the new crop year. The industry is very likely preparing for the reports, but the overnight surge by the U.S. dollar is almost surely depressing prices as well. December corn futures slipped 1.25 cents to $3.245/bushel early Tuesday morning, while May lost 1.25 to $3.4575.
