Al Kluis, Kluis Advisors, says that traders will be watching to see what this week's USDA report says about corn ending stocks.

"The trade expectation is that ending stocks of corn will only increase by 112 million bushels in the Thursday report. However, this is very questionable. Exports are way below the pace needed and now we also have to factor in--sooner or later--the slowdown in ethanol consumption and ethanol corn crush," Kluis told customers in a daily note.

Kluis added, "Watch weather forecasts for the Delta, where many states have an April 15 planting deadline on their corn acres. For many farmers with a high Actual Production History (APH), prevent plant may be a good alternative."
