On the Corn front harvest is being slowed by wet weather across the plains and Mid-West with winter like storms approaching from the west and north. The yields we have witnessed so far see no recovery after harvest Thanksgiving rally. In the overnight electronic session the December Corn is currently trading at 338 ¾ which is a ¼ of a cent higher. Yes I said higher. The trading range has been 338 ½ to 337. We have a lot off carryover to breakdown and make Ethanol to export.

Speaking of Ethanol, “All is quiet on the Western front”, with no trades posted in the overnight electronic session. The December contract settled at 1.405 with the market currently showing 2 bids @ 1.392 and 1 offer @ 1.407 with declining Open Interest at 1,193 contracts.

On the Crude Oil front the International Energy Agency (IEA) released a statement that demand was coming to a halt with the global economies. Amazing statement when I see many counties GDP growing by leaps and bounds and another amazing thing is the IEA represents consuming Oil counties that import and not producing counties that export. This is not the first time such an outlandish statement came from this International Agency that I can only guess who governs but there is a pattern when they release this news that in reality turns out to be false. This morning we have the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) release their version of weekly Energy Stocks which may counter the IEA that OPEC production cuts are working and the market is getting back in balance. In the overnight electronic session the December Crude Oil is currently trading at 5515 which is 55 points lower. The trading range has been 5526 to 5497.

On the Natural Gas front changing weather forecasts has the market inching higher but trading a weather market with a U.S. model and a European model leads to sharp sell-off after forecast were changed to warmer from colder, and those forecasts did not become reality. In the overnight electronic session the December Natural Gas is currently trading at 3.127 which is 2 ½ cents higher. The trading range has been 3.134 to 3.069.

Have a Great Trading Day!
