CHART OF THE DAY
Continuing Themes:
** Acres “set” at 91.6 million acres.  USDA raised yields to 167.4 bpa – further increases likely later.
** USDA estimates US corn conditions at 73% G-E vs. 61% last year.  35% denting.
** Good rain coverage last two weeks solving many dry spots.  Corn crop mostly made at this point.
** World corn carryout seen expanding this year on good production prospects elsewhere & here.
** Ethanol margins remain highly profitable.  Hogs & Cow/Calf great.
** Spec funds basically net flat on corn.  New crop exports struggling to stay competitive.
Overnight markets were quiet and choppy, as once again Sept/Dec spreading accounted for the bulk of
volume (~85% of Sept, 60% of Dec).  A slightly firmer start gave way to modest sell pressures late on the
same  old  story  –  expectations  of  a  record  crop,  and  of  course  the  only  question  is  just  how  big.
Monday’s  condition  reports  were  a  little  surprising,  showing  US  Good-Excellent  ratings  actually
improved by 1% wk/wk.  Very unusual to see improvement in August, and indeed, present G-E ratings of
73% remain well above last year’s 59% for the equivalent week.  83% of the US crop was seen in the
dough stage, slightly ahead of average, while 35% was seen dented, which is slightly behind average.
The USDA still does not offer national harvest progress (and likely won’t for some time), but individual
state-by-states show:  Texas 46% harvested vs 62% avg, Louisiana 38% vs 74% avg, Arkansas 7% vs 34%
avg, and Georgia 56% complete vs 48% avg.  Mid-South (KY/TN) may see some test cuts this week, but
the bulk of harvest is not expected to occur until next week?
Corn effectively achieved downside price objectives at $3.61 CZ, which may offer the market some
stability.  First resistance remains at $3.75-3.80 CZ, then $3.90-$3.95.  Those with a need to be short
should consider selling the market scale-up on rallies, with a particular emphasis on the July contract,
which has occasionally poked its head above $4.  Earn those carries!  If concerned about shorts, look
at buying Oct/Dec Calls to hedge up sales on breaks.   Vol is cheap, but it’s usually cheap for a reason…
Corn left a close Sunday night, and was never able to fully regain its footing intra-day, finishing 3-5 cents
lower despite some abortive attempts to bounce late.  Volumes were light in both futures and options
to  start  the  week,  no  doubt  as  many  look  forward  to  an  extended  Labor  Day  holiday  (this  author
included).  Rains over the weekend were centered in the Northern Plains, which may have helped some
of the late planted corn.  5 day maps promise plenty of rain for the center of the Corn Belt.  6-10 & 10-
14 day maps are wet and warm to average temps – just what you want to see for early Sept days.  CIF
bids were slightly easier today, though still higher for the week, while interior basis was more mixed.
Farmers in parts of IL can still get nearly $4 cash corn?
Trade will be watching tomorrow for results out of China’s latest 5 mmt reserve corn auction.  They have
sold 22 mmt in total out of a target of 30 mmt.  On the demand front, nearly all corn end-user margins
are solidly green, but on the export front, US new crop offers struggle to maintain competitiveness vs.
cheaper Black Sea & Brazil supply.  Old crop shipments are still steaming ahead; inspections pegged at
1.091 mmt (43 mil bu), up about 15% wk/wk.  Total shipped to date is 1.809 bil bu vs USDA projections
of 1.920 bil bu, with about two reporting periods left.
