The four-week average for ethanol production decreased for the fifth consecutive week, landing at 988,000 b/d for an annualized rate of 15.146 billion gallons.
Contrary to most expectations, stocks of ethanol diminished only slightly from last week. Stocks decreased just 0.4% to 23.2 million barrels, 7.4% higher than year-ago levels.

Oddly I put this through this morning but it doesn't look like it took, so here we go again:

Wheat futures were lower after the Kansas Wheat Tour pegged yields higher than expected, with the caveat that we don't know how much the snow storms over the weekend hurt the state's crop. HRW futures lost 8 cents, corn was down a penny and soybeans were little changed. Dow and DuPont's merger was approved in China, conditionally, and in weather news, it looks like more rain and flash floods in the central Midwest. Parts of southwestern Missouri and surrounding areas are going to see more precip today, which will only worsen conditions. 

 

Here's what happened overnight:

 

Brent Crude Oil = up 0.8%.  

West Texas Intermediate Crude Oil = up 0.6%. 

Dollar = up 0.1%.

Wall Street = U.S. stock futures lower in pre-market trading.

World Markets = Global stocks lower as Japan gets back from holiday.
