On the Corn Front we are looking at exports and weather now that we are realizing yields. Global weather is in play, however, the Ukraine closed the Corridor on Russian Warplane threat. The Russian ruble continues to rally 93.9:1 USD. The ruble rally is causing interior wheat prices to rise which is trimming profits to Russia’s exporters. The futures markets are absorbing the risk, trading risk on/risk off and afraid the next headline is yesterday’s or last weeks headline. We will price in fear of energy and food prices ahead, with the markets not dictating this, but pricing in the choppy waters ahead. As we head closer to the weekend follow reliable news sources, and remember the Fed meets next week, whether to raise interest rates or not. In the overnight electronic session the December corn is currently trading at 481 which is 1 cent higher. The trading range has been 482 ¾ to 477 ½.

Have A Great Trading Day!


Thanks,Daniel Flynn
