News of strong demand is supporting corn futures. Expect slow trading and limited price action over the next two weeks as many in the financial industry celebrate the holidays. Conversely, news events might spur choppy trading as low trading volume tries to accommodate orders. This morning’s news of a sizeable corn sale and the strong Export Inspections result are rather clearly boosting the corn market. March corn futures gained 0.75 cents to $4.1125/bushel late Monday morning, while July added 0.25 to $4.2225.
