Despite the lack of market data on American crop sales, international grain commodity prices appear to be remaining stable.

The budget impasse in the USA means the monthly Department of Agriculture (USDA) supply and demand crop report hasn't been released.

Nor has information been updated on harvest and plantings of soybeans, corn and wheat.

But grains analyst Malcolm Bartholomaeus, from Callum Downs Commodity News, says so far it's having little impact on the market.

"There's no wild swings one way or the other, but potentially there are some surprises that haven't been taken account of by the trade when the information flow resumes.

"That's when we could see reasonably large moves one way or the other."
