PJ Quaid, independent broker, says that the market is reacting negatively to investors that are holding long positions and are selling.
"Longs have lost interest and have exited. Option volatility was down all session. The moment corn turned negative, volatility was positive. The fear is to the downside. The weather looks good and things look to be calming down. Volume in corn is pretty low considering the size of the moves. Also, lumber prices are down hard and traders have been using lumber prices as a little barometer to the heat of the market," Quaid says.
At the open:
I did a little road hunting outside of Mooresville, North Carolina Sunday. Corn looks good, pasture's are mowed and ready for bailing. And, there was a little crop dusting going on. This corn should be ready for that September market.

Getting some welcoming rain in gods country. Will this affect markets? Is there planting still needed that might get done after the expected perfection date? Either way, prices in the + is ok with me!

Kluis added, “Will China continue to cancel old-crop corn purchases and roll those long positions out to new crop? If more old-crop cancellations are announced this week, then expect July to continue to drop compared with the December contract.”

He never forms the words "I predict". but he should.
