Corn Prices Higher 2nd Day In A Row

Bookmark and Share

Corn Futures--- There must be a God in my opinion as corn has traded higher for the 2nd consecutive session for the 1st time in about a month as I've talked about this market on multiple occasions I do think the downside is limited, but I also think the upside is limited for the rest of 2018.

Harvest is estimated to be around 91% complete in the U.S & should be wrapped up in the next week or so as that is a good thing if you are bullish this market as ending harvest generally creates a seasonal bottom as I do think historically speaking corn is cheap.

Corn futures are still trading under their 20 and 100 day moving average telling you that the trend is to the downside & if you are short a futures contract I would place the stop loss above the 2 week high standing at 3.62 as the risk is only about 6 cents or $300 per contract plus slippage and commission as the chart structure is outstanding at the current time due to very low volatility.

Large money management funds are short 230,000 contracts which is an all-time record as they clearly believe lower prices are still ahead, but I will sit on the sidelines & look at other markets that have higher volatility and better potential as the real volatility probably will not come into this market until spring as we now will focus on the 2018 crop with estimations of around 91.4 million acres planted which could produce around 14.6 billion bushels with ideal weather conditions.
