Weather: The new NOAA 8-to-14-day forecast predicts seasonably wet weather for most of the United States between December 5 and December 11. During this time, the eastern Corn Belt has the best chance of seeing the highest totals. Next week, cooler-than-normal temperatures are expected to sweep across the Plains and into the Midwest. 

General:  Following a holiday-shortened week, grain markets resumed full-day trading on Monday. Soybeans benefited the most, tracking nearly 1.5% higher today. Wheat prices were less fortunate, trending 1% to 2.5% lower following technical selling. Corn failed to move the needle much in either direction, yielding results that were slightly mixed. SOYBEANSThe USDA reported a 110k MT soybean sale to an unknown. According to Weekly Inspections data, soybean exports totaled 2.022 MMT for the week ending 11/24. This was a 403k MT decrease from the previous week and a 237k MT decrease from the same week last year. As of 11/23, 29.4% of Argentine soybeans had been planted, trailing last year by nearly 20%. Argentina’s government announced a new soybean exchange rate for export sales from November 28 to December 31. This is intended to increase export business out of the country, increase tax collections and increase competition for the US.
