Corn will have EXPANDED limits of 60 cents/bu tonight/tomorrow. Beans remain at $1.50 bu limit, soyoil at 550 points and soymeal have limit of $45 a ton tomorrow.

Next major support in Sept corn at $5.25 & at $5.00. Chart below shows back in 2013, Sept corn went from $6.00 to $4.50 by August on favorable weather.

Weather maps still indicating rains to move through the Midwest this weekend and next week with cooler temps for next week. European model is not as heavy on the rain amounts as the GFS so have to see if the rains come to pass as forecast. Lately in the WCB the rain amounts have been lighter than forecast.

Farmers frozen at the wheel for now and will wait to see if they get moisture and how pollination goes. Old/new crop inverses stalling out for now while Dec/Mar spread widens out to -7 1/2. Look for consolidation type trade with focus on midday weather maps. Outside markets still has the US dollar index rising with energies and equity markets under pressure.

Letter to President Trump!


Tuesday, December 10, 2019

Time is running out, and we need to YOUR help TODAY.

America’s Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) is critical to revitalizing struggling farm economies, reducing our dependence on foreign oil, and protecting the climate. But Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) exemptions to oil companies have destroyed demand for billions of gallons of U.S. biofuels. President Trump vowed to restore lost gallons, but the current EPA proposal only accounts for a fraction of the demand destroyed by the agency’s unprecedented use of oil refinery waivers. We MUST demand action NOW before it’s too late.


Join us TODAY in calling on President Trump to take action now to reopen biofuel plants and revitalize markets for America’s farmers.

Thank you in advance for your continued support.
