OMAHA (DTN) -- This week's export sales report should be viewed as bearish for wheat, corn and soybeans, and bullish for milo, according to DTN Senior Analyst Darin Newsom.

Weekly export sales for all wheat showed a total of 11.9 mb (323,000 mt) with 11.8 mb (321,400 mt) for the 2017-2018 marketing year. This puts total marketing year sales at 642.5 mb, 10% below the previous marketing year. Weekly shipments of 14.6 mb (396,400 mt) put the marketing year total at 442.2 mb, 8% below the previous year. The total numbers could be viewed as bearish for wheat, Newsom said.

Weekly export sales of corn showed a total of 34.5 mb (876,400 mt) with all for the 2017-2018 marketing year. This put total marketing year sales at 901.5 mb, 27% less than the previous marketing year. Weekly export shipments of 23.3 mb (592,300 mt) put total marketing year shipments at 318.4 mb, 38% less than the previous year. The total numbers could be viewed as increasingly bearish for corn, Newsom said.

Weekly export sales of soybeans showed a total of 76.7 mb (2,086,200 mt) with 74.1 mb (2,015,800 mt) for the 2017-2018 marketing year. This put total marketing year sales at 1.335 bb, 16% less than the previous marketing year. Weekly export shipments of 74.2 mb (2,018,100 mt) put total marketing year shipments at 846.6 mb, 11% below what was reported the previous year. The total numbers could be viewed as decreasingly bearish for soybeans, Newsom said.

Weekly export sales of grain sorghum (milo) showed a total of 16 mb (406,600 mt) with all for the 2017-2018 marketing year. This put total marketing year sales at 128.6 mb, 23% more the previous marketing year. Weekly export shipments of 10.1 mb (257,600 mt) put total marketing year shipments at 48.8 mb, 26% above what was reported the previous year.
