CHART OF THE DAY






March beans have rallied off their lows right into the 50-62% retracement box.  Those
waiting on a rally to price beans may consider this opportunity. 

2/16/2015
Continuing Themes:

** USDA “finalized” US yields at 171.0 bpa (down from 173.4 in Dec) for a still record large 14.2 bil crop.
** World corn carryout seen expanding this year to a multi-year high near 190 mmt.
** Early South American harvest underway thru May.  Private estimates nearing 100 mmt total SAM.
** Ethanol & Dairy margins poor.  Feedlot, Cow-Calf, & Hogs okay.  Export competitiveness mixed.
** Spec funds net long 90,000 corn, both outright and likely against other ag shorts via spreads.

Overnight,  the  markets  were  steady  to  slightly  better,  as  the  ten  cent  break  off  the  week’s  high
stimulated  a  little  bargain-buying  and  short-covering  in  corn.
Outright  volumes  were  modest,  but  spread volumes were quite large – 15,000 H/K traded overnight. 
The Goldman Roll finished yesterday, but First Notice Day in March is exactly two weeks from today. 
For the week, corn is a little lower, and is heading into a three day weekend – markets will be closed Monday
for President’s Day.  Next week’s trade  could  either  be extremely  boring  or  extremely  wild,  given  the
various holidays  and  activities – Lunar New Year (China), Carnival (Brazil), and even the RFA conference
(ethanol).  Over the weekend geopolitics could receive more attention from traders than weather, given
the ceasefire deal inked in Ukraine yesterday.  The deal is not the first, and may not be the last, but is due
to go into force Sunday.

Corn has consolidated after testing major resistance just above $3.90.  Initial support lies at $3.80, but
more significant buying is likely the closer corn comes to $3.70, as those who missed the last dip look
to pile in for coverage.  Sideways trade may be very likely with farm selling above capping rallies, too.
Corn continued its sideways to lower chop Thurs, finishing 2-3 cents lower in another day of light flat
price interest.  Funds were estimated net sellers of 5,000 corn, and are likely net long close to 90,000
contracts.


Given  the  questions  surrounding  the  fund  count  in  their  last  report,  CFTC  data  will  be
watched tonight for a timely update?  Farmer interest has quieted down after some selling earlier this
week, and the board has not slipped enough to entice end-users to jump in with size buying.  Better-
than-expected export sales did not appear to stimulate much enthusiasm Thurs, perhaps as outstanding
sales (sold, not shipped) are falling farther behind 13/14 at 8% lower yr/yr.  There was a little export biz
overnight – Taiwan bought another cargo of US corn for April ship, paying $1.26 over the board.  Rumors
Brazil may need to clear a few cargos, so look for increased competition?  Corn Option vol has been
sinking up-front but firming in the back thanks to the emergence of the “Mexican” buyer.

Video Clips

The big news is of the train derailment and massive

explosion in W. Virginia if the train carrying Bakken crude

to the export facility in Yorktown, Virginia. This is the

second derailment in less than a week and the fourth

material derailment in the past two years… the others

being the derailment in Lynchburg, Virginia last year and

the tragic accident in Lac-Megantic, Quebec two years

ago. We have included a chart

denoting the massive increase in rail shipments of crude

oil over the course of the past several years here in the

US and we place the blame for this increase squarely

upon the shoulders of the President of the United States

who has refused… absolutely refused… to allow for the

building of the Keystone XL pipeline. The railroads have

“properly” stepped into the void created by the lack of this

pipeline but their period of time on the centre stage is

about to end. The President shall have to allow for the

building of the pipeline or he can be assured of more

such derailments in the future and we shall not likely to

be as lucky in the future as we were not to have people

killed in the W. Virginia derailment. This cannot be good

news for the railroads; this has to be good news for the

steel industry however.
