USDA released their September 1st Quarterly Stocks report Friday. ┬áThis report has been volatile at times but corn and soybean stocks came in just under the average of analyst’s expectations and similar to last year’s stocks report.

The report was neutral to price action for corn and soybeans and bearish for wheat.

Here is an excerpt from the USDA report:
