CORN Strategies Snapshot

TREND: The trend in March corn is down.

NONCOMMERCIAL OUTLOOK: Noncommercial traders held a net-long futures position of 270,242 contracts in corn as of Nov. 29, an increase of 21,447 contracts from the previous week and a moderately heavy presence in corn.

COMMERCIAL OUTLOOK: Commercials remain moderately net short as of Nov. 29, likely holding sales made against cash positions. The March contract is priced 1 cent below the May contract, a neutral indication of commercial demand. The national corn basis remains the strongest in over 20 years, a bullish indication of commercial demand for cash corn.

SEASONAL INDEX: Corn prices tend to peak in early June and bottom in early October.
