The grain markets look set for some increasing volatility in 2019. Corn fundamentals are improving, while the soybean market’s ending stocks situation could turn more bearish if there are no weather problems. Soybeans will continue to be dictated by Chinese demand and the outcome of trade talks with China. In late 2018 there was a resurgence of soybeans purchased by China which we hope will continue into 2019. Wheat is showing signs of an uptrend as the market experienced a key weekly reversal from a contract low in the first week of 2019 and is expected to trade higher as the year goes on.
