On the Corn front, the market traded higher yesterday on continued talk of South America’s crops needing much rain and La Nina may still push down on estimates of the crop that can yield to exports. U.S. exports remain strong heading into the 2021 export season. The stimulus package will add $13 billion of new aid to the U.S. agriculture sector. China's corn futures hit a new record high with a strike in Argentina delaying over 100 vessels with exports of 900 mt of corn. In the overnight electronic session, the March corn is currently trading at 445 ¾ which is 2 ¼ cents higher. The trading range has been 446 to 441 ½.

On the Ethanol front, producers will receive more tax benefits as part of the stimulus. And the market is poised into cashing in on higher blends of ethanol and biodiesel which ethanol stocks are large and ready to roll out production as the market gears of for an explosion of carbon dioxide and the solid virgin of dry ice which all hope will rebound the market in 2021. There were no trades posted in the overnight electronic session. The January ethanol settled at 1.325 and is currently showing 1 bid @ 1.100 and 1 offer @ 1.400 with Open Interest at 32 contracts.
