cmdty Insider - Corn Market Commentary


Corn futures closed 4 to 5 cents lower in the front months on Tuesday. Ethanol was lower in sympathy with a sharp drop in crude oil. Shipments of corn during the week of 11/8 were tallied at 1.137 million metric tonnes (MMT) in this morning’s Export Inspections report. That is well above this time last year but slightly slower than last week. As of Sunday, the US corn crop was 84% harvested, shy of trade estimates and the 87% average. Estimates for Ukrainian corn production continue to rise amid record yield reports. USDA added 2 MMT to their estimate last Thursday at 33.5 MMT. This of course implies further export competition for the US.Dec 18 Corn closed at $3.66 1/2, down 4 3/4 cents,Mar 19 Corn closed at $3.77 3/4, down 4 1/2 cents,May 19 Corn closed at $3.85 3/4, down 4 1/4 centsJul 19 Corn closed at $3.93 1/4, down 4 cents--provided by Brugler Marketing & Management
