CHART OF THE DAY

THOUGHTS ON CAPITALISM, FREE MARKETS and SOCIETY:

“Transfer payments…otherwise known as welfare… discourage the

recipients from earning income in the present and investing in their

potential to earn income in the future. People respond to a reduced cost

of idleness by choosing to be idle more often.” Robert Higgs: Dr. Higgs is

an American economic historian and economist combining material from

Public Choice, the New Institutional economics, and the Austrian school of

economics. His writings in economics and economic history have most

often focused on the causes, means, and effects of government power and

growth.

** USDA yields improved to 174.2 in Oct.  Probably will inch another notch higher in Nov?
** Harvested acres cut to 83.1 million acres (-0.7 mil).  Reduction much less than bull was expecting.
** Early corn harvest underway (31% cut).  Progress likely to accelerate, but weather pic more wet?
** World corn carryout seen expanding this year to a multi-year high.
** South American planting underway (Arg @ 24%).  Net corn acreage reductions expected.
** Ethanol margins still profitable.  Livestock great.  Export competitiveness struggling.
** Spec funds net long corn, likely against other ag shorts (beans, wheat).
Overnight, corn trade was quiet and two-sided, finishing a little higher by the AM break.  The markets
received a last minute boost from another week of good export sales – 1.03 mmt of new sales (40.6 mil
bu) were reported, above the pace needed to meet USDA forecasts.  Over half of the sales were made to
unknown destinations (Mexico?).  Most of the “known” sales destinations remain “local” – Colombia,
Peru, Jamaica – as Brazil & Black Sea corn generally work better into Asian destinations.  FOB Gulf corn
for N/D/J eased back 5 cents yesterday, which will help, but a lot more help is needed?  Logistics remain
challenging at best?  On the harvest front, areas along the NE/IA border received the expected one-half
to one inch rains, though that system is expected to significantly diminish as it heads east.  The next five
days are fairly clear, while the 6-10 & 8-14 day maps retain their wetter (and yes, warmer) bias.  Harvest
should expand, particularly as farmers in many areas get ready to put away their bean heads.
Markets  are testing the  very top  end  of  the  recent  trading  range,  and  has  built some momentum.
While we remain skeptical of the rally enduring, pushing to $3.70-$3.75 is certainly possible.  We feel
this is a great chance to hedge for the producer, and still advise a scale in sale approach, perhaps with
call protection to cap risk.  Still no sign we have achieved a definitive harvest low in corn, but the
“easy” downside push has likely been captured.   $3.05 to $3.20 is an extreme value area.
Futures got off to a good start Tuesday, but the buying abruptly stopped, and the weight of harvest
selling  was  finally  able  to be  felt.   Also  weighing  on  the market was  a  greater  consensus of  calls  for
better Brazilian rains ahead, which should help planting.  On the demand front, the EIA pegged weekly
ethanol production at an 896,000 bbl/day rate, up 1.5% from last week, and would effectively consume
4.95 billion bushels over a crop year.  Yes, that is short of USDA estimates for a 5.12 billion grind, but
production is likely to expand in the very near future as autumn maintenance turnarounds ease and new
crop corn flows more freely.  A recent ethanol market rally improved margins to 60-80 cents/bu, from
20-30 cents/bu at the beginning of Oct.  The USDA reported egg sets up 4% yr/yr, hinting at continued
poultry expansion on good margins in that sector as well.  Hard to find someone who can’t make money
off $3.50 corn, which no doubt has helped drive buying once the market found some support.  Friday
will be a busy day – Nov options expire at the close, and both Cattle on Feed & CFTC due out after.
