Edwards Market Thoughts

5/20/2019 8:00am 

Corn market is sharply higher as weather maps are wet for the Midwest for the next 2 weeks. Hence corn planting, especially in the ECB will be delayed as we get toward the first week of June. Estimates for tonight's planting progress report range from 46-50% vs 5 year avg of 81%. Funds were short more than expected in Friday's CFTC report, short 282k contracts as of last Tuesday night.

Since then they are thought to have trimmed it down to 209k contracts but still a way to go to get to even (or long). Monthly chart of nearby corn shows next resistance point after $3.90 is $4.00-$4.10.

Dow futures giving up 121 points at 25,659 in early trade. Crude a qtr of a buck higher at $63.01.

We have an estimated 51 million acres unplanted as of this morning. Trade suspecting a 2 – 3 mln planted acre decline ultimately? Getting concerned on the planted acres as well.

News on the tariff war has been tucked away for the time being.  Higher call with planting progress report due out this afternoon at 3. 

Tuesday - Wednesday
