CHART OF THE DAY
Feb 2, 2017

**  USDA confirms record 2016 US Corn harvest  – 15.15 billion bushels (revised slightly lower from Nov).
** World corn carryout seen  at a  record high, but  not quite as burdensome when compared to use.
**  Argentina corn planting complete – some re-planting. Brazil already starting to plant second crop.
** Ethanol margins  breakeven/worse.   All livestock sectors  profitable overall.
**  US  Corn  should see  continued  yr/yr gains in exports.   Black Sea, Arg, & US competing for  biz.
**  Funds leaning  slightly net long corn now for the first time since summer?

Overnight, the corn market found some willing sellers after the prior day rally to the top end of the
range, finishing a penny lower by the AM break.  Export sales arrived in good stead, with 1.144 million
metric tons of new business reported; this is the third week in a row above 1 mmt.  Business was split
pretty evenly between unknown, Colombia, Japan, and Taiwan, and even Morocco snuck in for a cargo.
Combined sales + ship for the marketing year to date topped 40 mmt for the first time, which compares
to just 24.3 mmt this time last year.  There were another batch of daily sales announcements today,
which should keep exports steaming ahead; 140k to unknown, 110k  to Japan.  Exports will remain a hot
topic in the days ahead, regardless of the sales pace; US-Mexico said to re-negotiate their portion of
NAFTA  in  May?    Moving  along,  weather  is  still  an  influence,  and  we  continue  to  view  it  somewhat
negatively given stabilization in Argentina and continued benign weather in Brazil.  Rains in early soy
harvesting areas are delaying second crop planting for some.  Brazil exported just 1.5 mmt of corn in
January, down sharply from 4.4 mmt this time last year.

Corn  continues  to  trade  around  a  $3.50  to  $3.70  range,  albeit  with  some  volatility. Shorts  who
covered near $3.55 on our recommendations are  probably  pretty happy? We  expect an awful lot of
“buy stops” were placed  at last week’s high of $3.71, which would be an easy target in the interim.
Look to do bearish things on a trade near $3.75, which coincides with  first PriceCount objectives.


After taking Tuesday off, the funds came to play in the corn market Wednesday.  Futures were a little
softer overnight, and much to the surprise of many, the corn market melted up gradually throughout
the day, ultimately closing 8-9 cents better by days’ end.  Managed Money were viewed net buyers of
upwards of 15,000 contracts, which would leave them close to 25,000 contracts net long.  Cash markets
are weak to start the day, as merchandisers brace for another tranche of farmer sales.  The weekly EIA
ethanol report had some feature, unexpectedly finding a new record high on production.  Production
jumped nearly 1% to a new record high level above 1.061 mil bbl/day; by way of comparison, we were
expecting a 1% decline.  We would expect this to be the high for at least the next four to five months?
Carried forward, such a rate would imply a corn ethanol grind just over 5.8 billion bushels/yr, which is
quite remarkable.  Given the prospects of reduced output ahead, we still feel comfortable forecasting
the full year ethanol grind between 5.35 and 5.40 billion bushels.  Ethanol futures closed near unch’ed
vs.  the  higher  corn  board,  which  sank  the  crush  back  down  to  near  recent  lows.    We  view 
industry margins at breakeven to slightly worse on average across the Midwest, when including all costs.
