Market Updates
  • October 20, 2017 3:15 PM CDT by DAN VAUGHT
    Corn futures sank into the close to finish the day 3 1/4 to 4 1/2 cents lower. For the week, December corn posted a loss of 8 1/4 cents. Bears have momentum heading into next week. Key will be if futures hold above last week's fresh contract lows, as a dip below that could trigger a round of sell stops. But we believe downside risk from this point forward should be relatively limited as demand has improved. Ethanol production is picking up and export news has become more regular. With the crop size known, focus has turned to demand. In order for prices to work higher, the market needs a near-constant dose of positive demand news. Otherwise, buying will likely be limited to the top of the two-month consolidation range.
