    UPDATE: Wheat turning a corner after hurricane – #SaxoStrats

    Product Manager Futures and Options / Saxo Bank
    We're closing the wheat trade we initiated on September 7 (Buy +1 Vertical ZWZ7 OCT 17 OZWV7 445/450 Call @2.25) with a maximum gain today before close as it is expiration day. The grain markets remain volatile on crop risks from South America and short covering. Traders could consider rolling out and up the strategy with November expiration.

    The United States Department of Agriculture will release its monthly update on supply and demand later today at 1600 GMT. The August report helped send all three major crops lower when the government raised yield and production estimates by more than expected. A general downward revision is currently expected.

    Trading a wheat bounce through spread to corn — #SaxoStrats

    Head of Commodity Strategy / Saxo Bank
    Record Russian wheat production and dwindling time left to upset the crop prospects in the US have seen December CBOT wheat drop 25% since July. Funds have chased the market lower, while potential buyers have stood aside, waiting for the washout to run its course. Wheat is oversold, and we look for a rebound through a spread to December corn.

    The USDA will publish its monthly 'World Agriculture Supply Demand Estimate' report for August later today at 1600 GMT. Last months report helped trigger a sell-off which eventually saw a complete reversal of the strong gains witnessed during early July.
    Today's report will focus on corn and soybeans as it will include first assessments of the 2017 crops based on field surveys. Analysts are forecasting a lowering of the yield in both crops with a Reuters survey pointing to a cut in corn yield of 4.5 bushels per acre to 166.2 bushels and a 0.5 bushels-per-acre reduction to 47.5 bushels per acre in the forecast for the soybean.
    Open interest, especially in corn, has been cut continuously during the past four sessions as traders ease up on positioning ahead of the report.
    Attached the average survey results from Bloomberg and Reuters
