    AFB Grain-Soybean Close: Wheat, Soybeans Mixed, Corn Slightly Higher

    Closing commodity reports from the Arkansas Farm Bureau Commodity Staff.

    Soybean Comment
    Soybeans ending the week mixed with the greatest pressure on old crop as traders see exports shifting to South America. Satellite photos confirm large numbers of ships are cued up at South American ports. It is expected to take weeks to load out these ships and some have projected the shipping season will extend to November or perhaps later. A smaller than expected February crush also weighed on old crop. The crush was almost 5 million bushels below expectations. November futures held support again today closing slightly higher to end the week.

    Grain Comment
    Wheat closed narrowly mixed with July closing about a dime below resistance around $7.30. A close above that level would suggest a temporary bottom in the market. This week’s export sales were a positive feature in the market as they reached a market year high.

    Corn retained a firm tone and closed the day with slight gains. December continued to hold above key support around $5.50. FAPRI forecasts a record 2013 U.S. corn crop of 14.37 billion bushels and a billion bushel increase in ending stocks. Recent firming of corn relative to soybeans should keep plantings near the 98 to 99 million acre range.
