Soybean aphid prediction for 2015

Market Commentary

Morning Comments 10/24

The soy complex is leading the other crops higher. Thursday’s news reminded the ag industry that demand for beans and meal has been extremely strong in 2014, with the weekly export sales total doubling forecasts. The fact that it broke out above its pivotal 40-day moving average after having seemed to fail in doing so Wednesday exaggerated the advance. That seemingly bodes well for short-term prospects (although resistance at 50-day MAs may be an obstacle). November soybean futures surged 5.0 cents to $9.9825/bushel in early Friday action, while December soyoil skidded 0.01 cents to 32.66 cents/pound, and December soymeal climbed $5.7 to $358.1/ton.
