Monday's weekly export inspection report showed 19.5 million bushels of wheat was inspected for near term export down from 31.2 the week prior and four-week average of 26. It's an average number at best for this week's demand as it came off huge sales last week as seen in the weekly export sales. With ample ending stocks over 800 m.b. importers are picking spots to buy cautiously or timely to themselves as needed. Corn inspections saw the wrath of a up limit price surge late last week with inspections coming in at 24 m.b. versus 38 last week. Were up and down weekly on demand and unless China surfaces as a corn buyer demand will remain supportive on breaks in prices as stocks are tight with planted acreage estimates concerns as our buying force for rallies in the month of March. Bean export inspections were 48.6 million bushels versus 41.8 the week prior and four-week average of 36. China was in for 35.3 of the total versus the prior weeks of 34, 19, 22, 29, 25 and 23 m.b. Traders see wheat demand increases largely coming in the Middle East countries concerned with civil unrest over food shortages, but the tonnage is not panic buying numbers that drive prices but supported for breaks in prices. Wheat long side potential comes in March and April from any weather issues in the southwestern winter wheat states as we break dormancy. To date, key producers Texas, Colorado, Oklahoma and Kansas have seen a drier than normal winter with number one winter wheat producing states Kansas with the poorest crop condition on record. Should March and April unveil timely rains and sunshine the worst is over and prices will softened. But, all the current forecasts show a drier start to March and if that continues a price surge will occur especially the last half of March to April's end. Traders see corn demand as mainly supportive as to its relationship to dangerously low ending stocks and need of planting more acres than the 92 m.a. the government predicted at last Friday's agricultural forum conference. Any private analytical firms that come out in March with lower estimates will lead to sharp daily price gains and of course the fear is that since the government estimate of 92 m.a. is there high estimate, traders fear the March 31 planted acreage report with farmer estimates will come in under 92. Bean demand by traders is seen as near-term friendly and supportive on breaks and long-term bullish. Demand continues at a record pace with changes on delivery dates from old crop year to new crop year as a reason to sell sharp rallies but not to sell the brakes. Technicals read like this going into Thursday. May corn support lies at 7.12 then 6.96. Resistance is 7.44. Be a conservative buyer at 7.12 and aggressive at 6.96. We should see higher prices ahead of next Thursday's USDA crop report. May beans support lies at 13.60 then 13.00 again. If 13.60 bought use tight stops. Next resistance is 14.25 then 14.65. May wheat support is 7.90 and 7.95. A tight range. A strong close over 8.10 sets up 8.50 then 9.00. Have stops under 7.90.
