On the Corn Front we have Last trading Day on all March grains. The market is waiting for this morning’s CPI after the Silicon Valley Bank failures.  Where were the regulators?  Regulation failed us again being asleep at the switch with and also having an SVB officers on the regulation committee.

Can you see this recipe for disaster? More banks may be in trouble and analysts pointed out Credit Suisse is also Interest Rate sensitive This sounds like 2008 all over again and who is going to pick up the bill? Biden said a fund banks set aside but are there more failures on the way. Getting back to the corn market there are many reasons the market is sluggish with the bank news, state of the economy, and UN negotiations to reopen the Ukraine export corridor, sluggish exports and Brazil harvesting.
