CHART OF THE DAY
** USDA “finalized” US yields at 171.0 bpa (down from 173.4 in Dec) for a still record large 14.2 bil crop.
** World corn carryout seen expanding this year to a multi-year high near 190 mmt.
** Brazil first corn harvest 30% complete.  Private estimates nearing 100 mmt total SAM corn.
** Ethanol & Dairy margins poor.  Feedlot, Cow-Calf, & Hogs okay.  Export competitiveness mixed.
** Spec funds net long 30,000 corn.

Overnight, the corn market traded slightly better, finishing two cents higher by the AM break, as traders
take  advantage  of  Monday’s  break.

Though  it’s  hard  to  believe  with  many  grappling  with  sub-zero temperatures,  the  early  US  planting 
season  has  officially  begun;  Texas  planting  was  estimated  4% complete  by  the  USDA,  which  is  slightly 
behind  the  7%  average.    While  the  vast  majority  of  the  US Midwest isn’t even thinking about it until
April days, analysts and traders are already looking ahead to weather forecasts. 

The US is due for a welcome warm-up over the next couple of weeks, but longer-
range glances suggest a cool/wet spring – not particularly conducive to substantially lower prices in the
short-run.    Grain  buyers  doing  their  best  to  back  off  basis  bids  with  the  turn  in  the  weather,  which
should facilitate grain movement.  Farmers remain an extremely tight holder of on-farm corn supplies,
but end-users are clearly banking on them being forced to move some higher-moisture grain.  Traders
will be eyeing Informa’s stat release later this morning ahead of the March WASDE due out one week
from today.

May Corn reached up to its first major resistance point at $3.95 and faltered.  Last week’s trade has
also firmed up $3.80 as the support point to beat to the downside.  Corn remains range bound until
proven  otherwise,  though  from  a  seasonal  standpoint  there  tends  to  be  more  upside  risk  than
downside risk at this timing.  On last week’s low, corn entered the very beginning of a technical value
area for end-users.

With little fresh news to talk about, corn struggled to sustain Friday’s rally and finished about 5 cents
lower  to  start  the  week.

Funds  were  estimated  net  sellers  of  7,000  corn  contracts  today,  and  are
believed to be net long just below 30,000 contracts today.  The big item of conversation to start the
week was the ongoing Brazil trucker strike, where the situation is still somewhat fluid, but appeared to
be improving.  This was enough to relieve anxiety Monday, and both corn and beans assumed a more
defensive tone.  Last week, gov’t reports estimate there were 99 blockades – Saturday night, that was
down to 46, and last night, it was estimated at 23.  The main concern of the corn market is getting the
second crop – or safrinha – corn planted.  Analysts on the ground in Brazil believe 70% of those intended
acres (roughly 20 mil acres, or 48 mmt of production) are planted – the weather window to get the rest
of those planted is beginning to close, lending some urgency to the process.  Grain Inspections were a
bright spot; USDA reported shipments of 1.28 million metric tons (50 mil bu), more than the routine
800,000 metric tons expected.  Destinations were quite far-flung and included Egypt & Saudi Arabia as
well as traditional buyers such as Mexico, Japan, and Colombia.  YTD corn shipments stand at 18.6 mmt
vs. 18.0 this time last year – an increase of 3%, though outstanding sales are behind.

The big news is of the train derailment and massive

explosion in W. Virginia if the train carrying Bakken crude

to the export facility in Yorktown, Virginia. This is the

second derailment in less than a week and the fourth

material derailment in the past two years… the others

being the derailment in Lynchburg, Virginia last year and

the tragic accident in Lac-Megantic, Quebec two years

ago. We have included a chart

denoting the massive increase in rail shipments of crude

oil over the course of the past several years here in the

US and we place the blame for this increase squarely

upon the shoulders of the President of the United States

who has refused… absolutely refused… to allow for the

building of the Keystone XL pipeline. The railroads have

“properly” stepped into the void created by the lack of this

pipeline but their period of time on the centre stage is

about to end. The President shall have to allow for the

building of the pipeline or he can be assured of more

such derailments in the future and we shall not likely to

be as lucky in the future as we were not to have people

killed in the W. Virginia derailment. This cannot be good

news for the railroads; this has to be good news for the

steel industry however.
