The latest world supply and demand estimates, released by the USDA yesterday further compounded the bearish sentiment that the grains and oilseeds market is experiencing.

The latest world supply and demand estimates, released at 5pm (BST) on Thursday (11 September) by the USDA further compounded the bearish sentiment that the market is experiencing. For wheat and maize, production estimates were increased further, but the most dramatic boost was seen for soyabeans.
