Corn Futures Market News and Commentary

Corn Fades into Close

After having rallied more than 1% through midday, the front month corn futures complex faded into the close. For March it was enough to end a penny in the red at $6.20/bu – still up 34 3/4 cents from the Jan 14th low. The other front months held on to 1 to 3 1/2 cent gains. The national average corn basis from cmdtyView was 14 cents under March at midday. That compares to minus 22 cents last year. The ECB basis is 5 cents weaker than last year at -20 cents, while the WCB basis is -12.5 cents compared to -27.5 cents last year. Looking to new crop, cmdtyView data has the ECB corn basis at -27 cents, and the WCB basis at -35 cents. 

The wheat /corn spread has widened back to nearly $2/bu on the board. Back in November the front month SRW contract was a $2.56/bu premium to corn but had faded to just a $1.45 two weeks ago. On the cash side, SRW prices are $1.67 above corn while HRW is a $1.81 premium.
