Edwards Market Thoughts

10/19/18 8:10am

Corn market is steady to slightly lower this as it tries to stabilize heading into the week after losing over 3 cents/bu this week. Open interest was up over 10k contracts. The lower Ukraine corn values displacing US corn exports and US harvest continues to weigh on values short term.

Wet weather in the Midwest today will stop producers from running on soybeans and likely see them switch to corn until bean fields dry out. Farmer selling is expected to pick up on any bounces to last week's highs. Interior corn basis levels a mixed bag with the rain delayed harvest allowing logistics to keep up with the harvest pace.

Ukraine corn harvest is 56% complete while French corn harvest is 81% done vs 47% this time last year. Besides the US planting more corn acres next spring, South Africa farmers are expected to plant 7% more corn acres due to good rains.

Dow futures 90 points higher after sharp losses yesterday. Crude still under $70.00 at $69.17 up 54 pts this morning.

NOAA released updated long term maps which cover the start of Winter in the US. Much of the country looks to see above normal temperatures and normal to below normal precipitation. The South is the exception with the weather agency expecting above normal precip.

The Environmental Protection Agency can allow sales of higher-ethanol blends of gasoline year-round without Congress, its acting administrator said on Thursday, adding that the oil industry should drop its threat of a lawsuit to halt the move.

Look for defensive trade with Dec holding key support near $3.70.
