Britt O'Connell, Cash Advisor for Commodity Risk Management Group, says that President Trump’s Mexico tariff threat took hold of the corn market overnight and either the fear of the threat subsided or the reality of our planting situation resurfaced.

“Either way corn this morning is making yet another run at the $4.50 per bushel line of defense. Seems to be holding strong. The market realizes the reality of crossing thru that threshold and will likely not do so unless we get a fresh influx of bullish news,” O’Connell says.

O’Connell adds, “The bears can hibernate but the bulls need to be fed everyday. Today is the prevent planting day for a lot of corn acres. So, only time will tell how that plays out, but I can tell you with $4.50 corn and an MFP payment tied to acres planted, a lot more producers are determined to get it planted,” O’Connell says.
