September 19 - Morning Comments

Grain markets are trading lower again this morning with corn down 2, soybeans off 7, and Chicago wheat down 5 cents.

Fundamental news was very light overnight and traders remained focused on harvest pace and early yield reports.

Yields have been varied but in general have confirmed expectations for a very large crop. Harvest weather looks promising over the next two weeks as a dry weather system is expected to bring below average precipitation to the majority of the grain belt. Frost/freeze concerns should not enter the market until early October as temperatures are expected to be above average through October 1st. The threat of an early freeze on late developing crops remains the last hurdle for yield on this year's corn and soybean crops.

Scottish citizens voted down a referendum to leave the United Kingdom on Thursday. The final vote was close with 55% voting to remain in the United Kingdom and 45% favoring separation. British and European markets are rallying as a result after results were announced and the dollar index is bouncing back from Thursday's sell off.
