In summary, post-report reactions can be best summed-up by saying the Bears were disappointed yet again. Trader sentiment was universally bearish soybeans and there are a lot of shorts that could be forced to the exit door in the days ahead. Wheat has been poised for a rally and has plenty of room to run to the upside. Corn trader sentiment has been more mixed, but there are many, many users that find themselves with inadequate ownership. Producer selling interest will surface 20+ cents above yesterday’s settlement. Technical conditions are capable of producing such strength. Basically, I don’t see anything in today’s data or post-report price action that says I should alter the basic themes that I have been discussing for weeks.
