cmdty Insider - Corn Market Commentary

8 minutes ago
Corn futures settled 3/4 to 1 cent lower on Wednesday. Drier weather in the western Corn Belt is allowing harvest activity to pick up. The weekly EIA report indicated reduced corn consumption, with ethanol production for the week of 10/12 averaging 1.011 million barrels per day. That was down 29,000 bpd from the week prior and the lowest output since mid-April. Ethanol stocks were up another 109,000 barrels to 24.130 million barrels despite the reduced production, with the Rockies and Gulf the only regions to show reductions to stocks. EPA also indicated that the E15 plan won’t be available for comment until February, which would in our opinion delay implementation until May or later because of the Federal Register procedures. Thursday’s Export Sales report is expected to show 0.8-1.3 MMT in 18/19 corn sales for the week of 10/11 according to wire surveys.Dec 18 Corn closed at $3.74 1/4, down 1 cent,Mar 19 Corn closed at $3.86 1/2, down 3/4 cent,May 19 Corn closed at $3.93 1/2, down 3/4 centJul 19 Corn closed at $3.98 1/2, down 3/4 cent--provided by Brugler Marketing & Management (402) 289-2330
