funds position.

Funds are net short 10K corn contracts presently.  The first time Funds have been net short corn since 2005.

Is that a comment on the expectations of the corn harvest, the US economy, or the federal reserve?

 

Is that position in preperation for the change to come?   --------- Or just an indicator of instability and risk management?

Just proof that anyone, and sometimes everyone can be wrong.

Or, their belief in the USDA is off the charts.
