On Thursday, the USDA released its World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates (WASDE) reports. 

The markets didn’t have a strong reaction to the bullish report that shows corn stocks have been lowered, expecting the average corn yield to be at 174 bushels per acre.

Production problems in South America due to weather could also turn into a more positive story for corn markets. 

Sue Martin, president and founder of Ag & Investment Services, Inc., this situation will continue evolving and it’s “going to keep getting better.”

These corn numbers appear to be the biggest story, however, soybean export estimates appear to be strong. 

To Naomi Blohm, senior market analyst with Stewart-Peterson, this is a signal trade relations between the U.S. and China will balance, calling the news “encouraging.”

For farmers with a lot of old crop corn on hand, Blohm suggests selling any time the market rallies.

“It’s an opportunity to get moving on those cash sales,” she said.

Hear why Martin thinks the highs will be here in the next few weeks on AgDay above.

Hello Every One, My Name is Trevor Cohen live in Texas and life is worth living comfortably for me and my family now. I really have never seen goodness shown to me this much in my life as i am a struggling Dad with three kids and i have been going through a serious problem as my son encountered a terrible accident last week, and the doctors states that he needs to undergo a delicate surgery for him to be able to walk again, and i could not afford the bill for his surgery then i went to the bank for a loan and they turn me down stating that credit score was bad, from there i run to my father and some of my freinds but they could not help, then when i was surfing through the net i came across a loan lender EDWARD JONES who provides loans at an affordable interest rate of 2% and i have been hearing about so many scams on the internet but at this time, in my desperate situation i had no choice than to give it a try and surprisingly it was all like a dream, i received a loan of $85,000.00 and i payed for my son surgery and thank GOD today he is okay and can walk. I could in turn start something profitable with the remaining amount and i said to my self that i will shout loud to the world of the wonders of GOD to me through this GOD fearing lender EDWARD JONES and i will advise anyone in genuine and serious need of loan to contact this GOD fearing Company via: Jonesloanfinance@yahoo.com
