The global markets are still in astonishment how the correction in the market looking like we were headed into the abyss and with yesterday’s action just left global investors scratching their heads. We corrected and sold off on positive news and if it was negative news, “Katy Bar the Door!” All signs are still showing a healthy and resilient economy that is spreading globally. Today’s reports we start off with EIA Energy Stocks at 9:30 A.M. followed up by Consumer Credit and Dairy Product Sales at 2:00 P.M. On the Corn front the market is trading higher in the overnight electronic session with the March contract currently trading at 364 ¼ which is ¾ of a cent higher. The trading range has been 365 to 363 ½. Tomorrow investors will keep a keen eye at Export Sales and the February Crop Production USDA Supply/Demand data.
On the Ethanol front the March contract is currently trading at 1.430 which is .007 of a cent higher. The trading range has been 1.430 to 1.424 with 11 contracts changing hands and Open Interest at 1,129 contracts. The market is currently showing 1 bid @ 1.422 and 2 offers @ 1.426.
On the Crude Oil front the market is finding more jittery buyers as the global markets shock to the correction want to believe it is only a correction and not a stalemate in global demand. That’s what makes a market! This morning at 9:30 A.M. we have the weekly EIA Energy Stocks which should show that global demand is in the big picture and once investors realize that demand is outsourcing production and supply we will be back at an imposing bull market. In the overnight electronic session the March Crude Oil is currently trading at 6316 which is 23 points lower. The trading range has been 6418 to 6286.
On the Natural Gas front the market is at the moment is telling us weather be damned as we move closer to the end of winter and shoulder season. Some believers think that Old Man Winter has not given up and wants to pull another punch before spring. Weather reports and forecast could spark another rally but it should surely be short-lived with producers trying to lock up any price spike with the cash market where it is to product and revenue. In the overnight electronic session the March contract is currently trading at 2.729 which is 3 cents lower. The trading range has been 2.782 to 2.720.
Have a Great Trading Day!
