·         Are "beans in the teens" old news?

 

Soybeans

The USDA reduced its estimates of 2011/2012 ending soybean stocks from 175 to 155 on August 11 to trigger a rally from the lower end of the current trading range.  However, the jury is still out as to whether the run will be able to lift November beans above the upper end of the trading envelope.  We feel as though the fate of beans will be heavily influenced by trading in the currency markets and it seems as though the long-term prospects for a stable to higher dollar could work against the idea of a dramatic soybean rally.  That said, speculative buyers are active and would could see moderately new highs before buying runs out and the market fulfills its pattern of softening prices into October. 

With the most recent USDA revisions, the stocks to use ratio is a skimpy 5% but on the world scene it is a more comfortable 24%.  This simply means that supply on hand will be enough to meet 5% of domestic demand and 24% of global demand.  Either way, there will be little tolerance for poor crop conditions.  As of today (August 22nd) the USDA reported that 50% of soybeans were raged good to excellent, this is down from 64% a year ago.  With that in mind, we feel as though there could be enough pessimism to drive prices above $14.00 in the November contract and perhaps a bit higher if speculations run rampant we could see a full retest of resistance near $14.60ish.  The chart could find resistance near $14.30 and this is where aggressive traders might consider playing the downside with the assumption that position trades could suffer if the later resistance area becomes a target.
