Hot and dry weather in Brazil is causing concern for their safrinha corn crop. A ridge has formed and it could impact the 2nd crop corn for the next 10 to 14 days. Corn has come down in the past week or two as the Argentina bull market has ended and it is still too early to get excited about planting weather in the US. Exports have been slow and the US Dollar seems to be making a bottom. We expect the grain markets to be range bound for the next couple of weeks. The upcoming major catalysts will be Brazilian weather for safrinha corn, US planting weather, and the May WASDE which will show the new crop supply and demand tables for the first time this year.
