Corn futures are posting 4 to 5 cents losses so far on Monday. Heavy rains are expected in much of the Corn Belt over the next week. Part of the selling pressure is from China’s list of retaliatory tariffs, which include ethanol, DDGs Sorghum, etc. This morning’s Export Inspections report indicated that 1.669 MMT of corn was shipped in the week that ended on June 14. That was 18.31% larger than the week prior and 36.74% more than the same week in 2017. Inspections YTD are now within 8.53% of a year ago, slowly gaining over the past several weeks. Managed money spec funds slashed their net long position by 77,383 contracts in the week of 6/12. On that date, they were net long just 36,216 contracts.Jul 18 Corn is at $3.56 3/4, down 4 1/2 cents,Sep 18 Corn is at $3.66 1/2, down 4 1/4 cents,Dec 18 Corn is at $3.78, down 4 3/4 centsMar 19 Corn is at $3.87 3/4, down 4 3/4 cents

Soybean futures are mixed at midday, with nearby July a penny higher. Front Month soy meal is down $2.50/ton, with soy oil up 5 points. Traders are taking profits and covering shorts to start the week, at least in July, though back months have slipped lower. That is following a sharp selloff so far in June that has seen 10 of the 11 sessions in the July contract close lower, and a loss of $1.13. Trade issues with China are likely priced in at the moment, following last week’s sharp losses. Export inspections in the week that ended 6/14 were reported at 818,396 MT by the USDA this morning. That is 21.13% larger than the previous week and more than 180% above the same time last year.
