CBOT corn futures are under the influence of Argentinian weather factor


Over the period under review (December 29-January 05) CBOT corn prices strengthened by 1.75% amid an upward trend in the adjacent wheat market, reports UkrAgroConsult. Besides, rains in Argentina may soon become another growth driver, as there is a risk of fields flooding.

The market was also supported by the export sales data. Since the marketing year’s beginning, the US corn exports are 80% ahead of the same period last year.

On the other hand, the upcoming corn harvesting in Argentina and Brazil, which is expected to start in a month, restrains the recent corn prices growth.
