Corn Futures Market News and Commentary

Midday Corn Near Break Even

Corn started a rally on Sunday night, but has faded back to near UNCH for midday. March had seen 4 1/4 cent gains earlier in the session, but is now a penny in the red. New crop prices are still fractionally to 2 cents in the black, but Dec is about 3 cents off its high.  

After the Lunar New Year break, Dalian Corn Prices in China were net lower on 3 to 13 yuan/MT losses. Note the Chinese market is also an inverse, with March corn a 3 yuan premium to May, which itself is a 24 yuan/MT premium to July.

USDA announced a private export sale of 112k MT of corn sold to Japan under the daily reporting system.
