Corn Futures Market News and Commentary

Corn Up 5 to 6 Cents Ahead of Export Data

Corn futures are 5 to 6 cents per bushel higher this morning. December deliveries overnight again totaled just 2 contracts. Yesterday, corn futures closed 3 to 5 cents higher. New crop prices closed 2 cents in the black for the first trade day of December. 

Export Sales estimates ahead of the weekly USDA update range from 600k to 1.25 MMT for corn. New crop corn bookings are expected to stay below 75k MT. 

The Grain Crushings report showed 469.312 mbu of corn were converted to ethanol during October. That was the largest corn grind for October since 2017, and the most for any month since Jan 2020. With that, ethanol plants produced 1.948m tons of DDGS, which was a 4 month high, and 183,804 tons of corn oil – an all time record going back to November 2014. 

Traders expect Friday’s StatsCan Crop Production report to show corn production of 14.1 MMT. That would be up 500k MT from last year if realized.
