On the Corn front, corn export intentions rebound as China volumes grow. We did see some weakness on the December corn as it expired to the cash market. It will be interesting to see how we roll as we head into winter next Monday and China will be buying feed grains to supplement their record herd of hogs that they are breeding with intentions of the long-term and will see the effect to the U.S. pork industry vs. other countries. Archer-Daniel-Midland Co. has reopened a key U.S. grain export terminal after construction delays, which should help boost their profits. Greg Morris, president of Ag Services and oilseed unit, said last month the U.S. was in a great position to have its largest export program ever in the fourth quarter. He continued margins were “great” and the pace was set to continue. “And even despite having five named storms hit New Orleans, the industry continues to run very well down there.” In the overnight electronic session, the March corn is currently trading at 421 ½ which is 2 ½ cents lower. The trading rang has been 424 to 420 ½.

On the Ethanol front, with COVID-19 cases on the rise, as the vaccine starts to get distributed, state, and local governments are taking additional actions to limit travel and promote social distancing. In turn, consumption of ethanol-blended gasoline is rapidly falling again, threatening to derail an already tenuous economic recovery in the ethanol industry. There were no trades posted in the overnight electronic session. The January contract settled at 1.310 and is currently showing 1 bid @ 1.250 and 2 offers @ 1.400 with Open Interest remaining at 32 contracts.
