Nothing Bullish About Corn

Bookmark and Share

Corn Futures--- Corn futures in the December contract are down 6 cents this week at 3.42 a bushel continuing its bearish momentum hitting a fresh contract low yesterday reacting negatively off of the USDA crop report estimating 175.4 bushels per acre which is an all-time high as production numbers were raised 298 million bushels to 14.578 billion as this report was extremely bearish in my opinion.

At the present time I'm not involved in corn and I will not take a short position, however after that I would have to think that corn prices will probably move $0.10/$0.15 lower in the coming weeks ahead as there is nothing bullish about this commodity except the fact that unleaded gasoline is hitting another contract high today.

The volatility in corn is extremely low at the present time as there will be very little fresh fundamental news to push prices higher except for possible short covering as the large money managed funds are heavily short wheat and corn so look for lower prices ahead.

Corn prices are trading below their 20 and 100 day moving average as the trend is to the downside as I still think prices are limited as were talking $0.10 or $0.15 which is not much as in the summertime that is a one day rally or selloff as I still think 2018 there will be a silver lining in this commodity as we just need to plant less acres than we have in the past otherwise this is going to put farming corn in jeopardy down the road in my opinion.
