Rumor is that China has found an unapproved GMO gene, MIR 162 in DDG shipments from the U.S. As a result, the country has stopped issuing import licenses for DDGs. It is applying significant pressure on the corn market, Monday.
One analyst says, "Corn down big today on the news that China will not buy ddg from us due to gmo problems, I kind of feel we might be making a temporary low on this kind of news. Wheat lower too on good planting weather and good harvest weather for the winter crops as well as cheaper overseas prices. Wheat should be near some kind of low, too. Prices are starting to turn higher on Russia so maybe the extreme down side pressure is passing. But, there is nothing around to make for a long term move higher, maybe we just level off for a while. The big action is in beans and especially the July-Nov spread. It has been a yo-yo today. Broke support but re bounded right back. We still got the roll this week so this might be short lived. Beans looking good out there too, and the crop ratings should be very high, for corn too."
