Corn Futures Close Black on Wednesday

Corn prices settled with gains after trading weaker through midday. New crop led the way and ended up by a nickel, as old crop prices closed 1 to 2 3/4 cents higher. The new crop soy/corn ratio was 2.281 going home.

EIA reported ethanol producers averaged 1.028 million gallons of daily production through the week that ended 1/27. That was a 16k barrel per day increase from the week prior and marked the 3rd consecutive +1m bpd production week. Producers were averaging 1.042 million barrels per day during the same week last year. Ethanol stocks were 635k barrels lighter at 24.442 million.
