2. Hot Market Report: Soybeans Futures Pushing Higher?

By Matt Kang, Senior Broker

ZS futures;

This week’s highlighted Market is soybeans. Soybeans futures are part of the GRAINS family which includes 4 types of Wheat, Corn, Soymeal, Oats, Rough Rice and Bean Oil. All traded on the CBOT/GLOBEX exchange.

Daily chart from this morning, (Oct 4th 2019).

A bullish quarterly grain stock report released on Monday (09/30) caused the market to push higher and played a pivotal role in the uptrend in soybean market. USDA currently estimates 47.9 bpa and this year’s crop report looks better than it will yield, and USDA might start to reflect that in next Thursday’ Crop Production report. A bull market is expected from both technical and fundamental sides in my opinion.
