Edwards Market Thoughts

4/25/18 8:10am

Corn market is firmer this morning with support from strong export demand and lack of farmer/elevator movement. A close above $3.92 in the July would open the door to a run back toward $4.00. Not much change in the weather maps with drier weather seen for the Midwest the next 10 days to allow corn planting to try and catch up. But the weather maps are also still dry for the next 10 days for Brazil's corn areas (which is supportive to US corn exports).

Equity markets under pressure this morning after some sharp losses yesterday. For the third time now Dow futures have been unable to take out the previous rally attempts high. The 23306 low set April 2nd key support. Crude oil at $67.67 off a scratch this morning. US $ sharply higher.

Chinese Ag Ministry said 2018 corn planted acreage would fall by 333k hectares, or 823k acres.

International Grains Council this morning cut their 2017/18 Argentine soybean production estimate from 43 to 38 MMT. USDA currently at 40 mmt.

The bottom line for the official weather outlook in most production regions is unchanged. A trough of low pressure is still expected to enter the western United States this weekend and then slowly shift into the central U.S. May 1 – 5. This will likely promote shower and thunderstorm activity in the Hard-Red Winter Wheat Region and West Texas Sunday – May 2 with locally meaningful rainfall.

Over the last three years this date forward, CZ has traded higher only near 8 and 10% of the time respectively.
