How Low Can Corn Prices Go ?

Bookmark and Share

Corn Futures--- Corn futures in the March contract settled last Friday in Chicago at 3.56 a bushel while currently trading 3.55 down about 1 cent for the trading week hitting a fresh contract low still reacting negatively off of the last USDA crop report which added nearly 300 million bushels to production numbers in 2017 as I still see very little activity in this commodity for the rest of 2017.

One interesting fact about corn is that there is a record short position from large money managed funds at the present time as they think prices will continue to move lower and I have to agree with them as there is very little bullish fundamental news to push prices up except for short covering.

Harvest in the Midwestern part of the United States should be around 85% complete as of this weekend as that should be wrapped up in the next 2 weeks as we will focus on next year as there was more disappointing news announced today with private estimates stating that there will be 91.41 million acres planted in 2018 which could produce a crop around 14.6 billion bushels which is a negative factor despite today's positive trade.

Corn prices are still trading below their 20 and 100 day moving average as the trend is to the downside, however I will not take a short position as prices are limited in my opinion as we might head down to the 3.40 level, but we are squeezing blood out of a turnip at these cheap levels.
