Slightly firmer markets to start the week with corn up 4 and soybeans up 2.

Limited news over the weekend has the markets feeling stale. With the continued concern over COVID and what implications looming shutdowns could have on the economy, traders will remain wary. Producers should not be complacent and thinking the markets are going to continue to climb or even hang where they are. If we were to see a 4-6 week shutdown this market could crumble back to the numbers seen last spring! The USDA’s report on Tuesday had a 11.5% stocks to use ratio. This could easily climb to 15% with a shutdown. $4 can still be sold for April forward and is a level I would recommend making sales.

Have a Safe Day
