The cowardly terrorist Isis is at it again and this is just another factoid they should be driven to the inferno regions down below. Iran, Russia and Syria are warned the blood is on your hands, your fingerprints are all over the cowardly assault on the Egyptian Coptic churches where people come to pray only to get massacred at St. George church in Tanto and St Mark’s in Alexandria which proves your DNA is on the wrong side of Free Human behavior. As far as the midget in North Korea after talks with China President Xi Jinping your days are coming to abrupt end very shortly. It is time to go on the offensive with nemesis of peace.
On the Corn front we have Export Inspections at 10:00 A.M. and Crop Progress at 3:00 P.M. In the overnight electronic session the May Corn is currently trading at 360 ¾ which is 1 ¼ of a cent higher. The trading range has been 361 to 359. A drop in temperatures forecasted with rain mixed with hail this week will dampen plantings moving forward this week.

The May contract settled at 1.629 and is currently showing 1 bid @ 1.633 and 2 offers @ 1.653 with Open Interest at 3,008 contracts. This morning’s strength is follow-through with higher Corn prices and a strong Energy complex.
On the Crude Oil front the market is digesting the geo-political drams around the globe in Africa, Middle East and the Asian-Pacific. In the overnight electronic session the May Crude Oil is currently trading at 5285 which is 61 points higher. The trading range has been 5299 to 5229.
On the Natural Gas front, after a week opening in the overnight electronic session the market sought new highs and is trading higher, however the market is moving back to the unchanged area. The May Natural Gas is currently trading at 3.271 which is 1 cent higher. The trading range has been 3.293 to 3.228. We should see a chop in prices in shoulder season with large exports and nuclear plants under maintenance preparing for the summer time months of air-conditioner use.
