Al Kluis, Kluis Advisors, says that investors will be watching two USDA Reports today for price direction.
“I am watching both USDA report releases today. I think the trade is underestimating corn used for ethanol this year and next, and that the ending stocks of corn may be less than the trade expects for the 2021/2022 marketing year. As always, the most important part of the day is to watch the trade reaction *after* the report and the price action from 11:30 AM into the close of trade," Kluis stated in a note to customers.
Kluis added, "The USDA Crop Progress report later today will show corn and soybean ratings unchanged to 1% better. Even with slight improvement, these mid-July ratings are in the bottom 30% of the crop ratings for this week over the last 35 years. Unless we get timely rain each week for the rest of the year, it will be difficult to get trendline corn and soybean yields this year in the U.S."

Good to see you back mike. Last time you posted corn was a dollar higher. Must be some crucial weather happening. Rain in the teens and several tornadoes here last few weeks. Curious why corn dipped through the support with unannounced sellers?
