Edwards Market Thoughts

3/21/18 8:10am

U.S. Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue signaled on Tuesday that the Trump administration was backing off efforts to make major changes to the nation's biofuels program and may leave it to lawmakers to settle the divisive issue instead.

Texas corn planting is 35% complete, up from 26% last week and an average on this date of 26%.  Brazilian consultant Safras & Mercado raised their estimate of soybean production in Brazil to 117.3 mmt, well above the most recent U.S. and Brazilian government estimates of 113.0 mmt. If realized, current USDA U.S. export projections may prove to be too high.

Corn traded both sides in a less than 2 cent range and comes into the morning mixed/weaker. CK8 has intraday support at $3.72 ¾ with intraday resistance at $3.76 ½. Open interest in corn was down more than 17K contracts on Tuesday with all of the fall coming in the May & July contracts. Volume of 372K contracts was below the 2018 average of 429K.

South Korean buyers bought 197K tons of US/South American corn on Tuesday for August arrival at a price of $216 per ton. Both US PNW and Argentine prices are at levels that could capture the business. AT 8AM, the USDA announced a sale of 138K tons of corn to South Korea.

Dow futures off 9 points this morning at 24,756 with S&P futures largely unchanged. Crude oil futures near a buck higher at $64.29. US $ Index slipping lower.
