Edwards Market Thoughts

9/16/2021 8:00am

Corn was slightly higher overnight on continued combination of technical buying, buying from S. Korea and light selling from US farmer yet.

Corn market pulled back after US weekly export sales report came out WAY below expectations, see table below. After almost a 40
cents/bu rally since last week's low, the Dec corn for now seems ready for a pause. Additional resistance is expected in CZ toward $5.45-5.50 which triggers a wider area in the Midwest of $5.00 cash corn off the combine to the producer.

Weather forecast stays above normal temps for corn dry down in the Midwest but showers tomorrow and early next week will hamper things a bit.

It will be interesting to see if we are putting in another top in the Dec board prior to combines running. Or will we push higher on some talk of smaller yields our east. Stay tuned!!
