Miller on the Market

Corn was mixed overnight on light volume as we head into the 3 day weekend. Little change in open interest across grains/oilseeds on yesterday's action, indicating slowing capital flow. US farmer selling did pick up on both old and new crop yesterday. Old crop corn basis was off 1-3 cents for nearby June slot at many ethanol locations including this one. CIF and PNW market generally steady. Interesting to note surge in Argentine corn prices this week as their corn harvest remains slow, up just 1% from last week to 29% done. Focus there remains on getting the soybeans out down there...harvest is 72% done now (18% behind last year yet). The results of the 1st Chinese corn auction was last night with 2.013 mmt offered with 889k tons booked (44.2%). The results were a little better than expected given the quality of the corn. Prices ranged from 1450 to 1650 yuan/ton ($6.19 to $7.04 a bushel). Weather forecast for Midwest remain wet into next week with another storm system expected Mon-Wed. Trade will be focused on how much planting progress was done in the ECB this week in Tuesday afternoon's crop progress reports. Hearing there is a lot of progress there. National number should be near 95% done Tuesday afternoon. French corn planting also running behind normal at 95% done vs 99% a year ago. This afternoon's Commitment of Traders report should show large jump in the spec fund position. Markets closed on Monday in observance of Memorial Day.  They open at 7pm on Monday night.  Have a great weekend and Happy Memorial Day! And don't forget to thank a veteran or current military for their service.  They have the toughest job in the world!
