WASDE Pre Report Analyst Estimates [Feb. 10, 2014]

The second World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates Report, or WASDE, report of 2014 comes out today.  WASDE reports serve as a commodity outlook for United States and world agriculture.

Moe Agostino, Managing Commodity Strategist for had this to say ahead of today’s report.

“Nearby corn futures are up +$0.38/bushel after hitting a low on January 10th  2014.  Soybeans +$0.599/bushel and Chicago Wheat +$0.084/bushel ahead of 2014 February WASDE report. The trade is expecting that the USDA will increase the export pace for corn, soybeans and wheat and therefore 13/14 ending stocks will be reduced slightly vs. last month, 11 million bushels lower for corn, 7 million bushels lower for soybeans and 5 million bushels lower for wheat.”
