Soybean futures pushed higher this morning on a scorching heat forecast and support from the corn market. Weather forecasts call for 100 degree temperatures for the central and southern Midwest today and tomorrow. The two week weather forecast calls for above normal temperature and below normal rainfall for most of the Soybean Belt. The trade continues to monitor crop and weather conditions but expect further deterioration in the new crop soybean yield if weather patterns in July reflect those of June. The U.S. Dollar and stocks are trading higher midday ahead of the European Summit on Thursday. The USDA will release its Grain Stocks and Planting Intentions on Friday. Traders will key off the soybean planted acreage report but will likely believe that the acreage estimate from the USDA will be too high as many parts of the Midwest will not be able to double crop soybeans over harvested wheat due to topsoil dryness. Traders are penciling in an increase of 1.6 million acres. The March report estimated planted acreage at 73.9 million acres."
