On the Corn front, we have the Big Three Reports today. While corn and soybeans planted are ahead of schedule, we must also remind ourselves it is June 10th. Not harvest time. We won’t gather data of yields at least to the 4th of July. Exports and weather will be in the marketplace not to mention INFLATION. With the South American crop weak and lack of global carryover paints a bullish picture to me. In the overnight electronic session, the July corn is currently trading at 693 ¾ which is 3 cents higher. The trading range has been 699 ½ to 687 ¾.

On the Ethanol front, the market hit pre-COVID levels and we will feel how popular this commodity will be when it is needed to be blended with gasoline in the summertime driving season with other countries want us to export ethanol to them and they play the card they are worried about carbon emissions. This will make corn and sugar prices rise. Business’ will be seeking a cheaper alternative to keep the process moving.In the overnight electronic session, there were no trades posted. The July contract settled at 2.460 and remains quiet with no market shown Open Interest is at 20 contracts and participation is showing the April contract is doing more business.

On the Crude Oil front, we saw prices move ahead of $70 a barrel. Iranian supply is lower than the market anticipated. While OPEC+ is telling member countries not to cheat on production. The next target is $80 a barrel and may be achieved this summer and possibly $90 a barrel is not far away. And the futures market is telling us today. In the overnight electronic session, the July crude is currently trading at 7001 which is 5 points higher. The trading range has been 7015 to 6929.
