Market News & Headlines >> USDA: No Weekly Export Sales Data Until Further Notice

USDA said in a statement on Monday that weekly export sales data would not be available until further notice, Reuters News Service reported.

USDA last week retracted weekly commodities export data it had released on Thursday citing problems with a new sales reporting and maintenance system that affected “both the quality and the physical dissemination of our weekly export sales data.” 

The issue has left grain and soy markets without a key demand indicator at a time when world supplies of corn, wheat and soybeans are all relatively tight. The corn and soybean markets will be focusing more on demand as the U.S. growing season comes to an end and new-crop supplies start flowing into those markets.
