On the Corn Front several bullish headlines will push this market higher, whether it is exports, global weather and demand, tar spots, global biofuels and ethanol. The news Japan and the United States coordinated as Japan decided to revamp and update their biofuels policies. With the US as a partner, this will improve exports of ethanol overseas, as we may have a new major player in imports of US ethanol like Canada and Mexico. This should boost corn & soybean prices as the USDA confirmed stocks are low, while demand will be big and the Renewable Fuel Standard continues to grow and make  and stocks more scarce as globally countries are thinking hand to mouth for human consumption.  In the overnight electronic session the May corn is currently trading at 649 which is 4 ¾ cents lower. The trading range has been 655 to 648.

Have An Excellent Trading Day!
