Edwards Market Thoughts

5/18/18 8:35am

Grain markets bounced last night on news the Chinese govt extended an olive branch and stated it was ending its US sorghum anti-dumping probe and return in full any deposits for the tariffs. In reality the damage has already been done and most of those vessels have found a different home. Still the trade is hopeful this is the start of getting this trade dispute behind us. July corn almost tested the $4.02 resistance point but stalled there. We need a close above this level to counter the short term down trend.

Open interest in corn jumped another 10k contracts yesterday, mostly in the July and Sept contracts. Tonight's Commitment of Traders report should show the funds expanding their long position in corn again. US corn planting pace is expected to be near the 5 year avg in next Monday's report as the upper Midwest races to get corn in the ground before the next rain system this weekend. French corn plantings are 8^% complete vs 97% a year ago.

 Look for supportive trade with $4.02 in July and $4.20 in Dec as key resistance points.

Initial crop ratings for corn likely a week from Monday. Suspect we will see a fairly high number. Year ago the initial rating was 65% and did not deviate much until late summer when it dropped to a low of 60%. The howling over how meaningless they are begins shortly. Let’s all remember crop ratings are “subjective” observations and not directly comparable year / year. All depends from where you start.
