Agricharts Market Commentary

Fri Aug 17, 4:21PM CDT
Corn futures closed the day with fractional to 1 cent losses in most nearby contracts, as September was up 1.82% on the week. CFTC data on Friday showed spec traders trimming their net short position in corn futures and options by 4,743 contracts during the reporting week that ended on Tuesday, taking it to -24,962 contracts. Total export commitments are now 99% of the USDA full year projection, with 104% the normal pace for mid-August (there are always sales that can’t be shipped rolled over to new crop). Exports are just 88% of that 17/18 estimate vs. the 93% average, as there are still 6.849 MMT in unshipped sales with just a shade over 3 reporting weeks left in the MY. China sold 850,780 MT of corn from state reserves into the domestic market on Friday, totaling 21.49% of the amount offered.Sep 18 Corn closed at $3.64 1/4, down 1 cent,Dec 18 Corn closed at $3.78 3/4, down 1 cent,Mar 19 Corn closed at $3.90 3/4, down 3/4 centMay 19 Corn closed at $3.97 3/4, down 3/4 cent
