May corn closed up 1 1/4 cents Friday but was down 5 1/2 cents on the week,
finishing at $3.77 1/4 as grains largely overcame a bearish hit from China to
start the day. Early Friday, China's Ministry of Commerce issued a list of 128
U.S. goods that it is proposing tariffs of at least 15% to balance the losses
resulting from new U.S. tariffs on steel and aluminum. Soybeans are not yet on
the list, but a 25% tariff on pork was listed as a secondary possibility after
further evaluation by the Chinese government. Even though Friday's news was
bearish for grains in general, corn was able to trade higher after the Buenos
Aires Grain Exchange lowered its corn crop estimate late Thursday, from 34.0
million metric tons (mmt) to 32.0 mmt (1.26 billion bushels). The exchange also
said 75% of the corn crop was rated either poor or very poor. Thirteen percent
was harvested and 34% was considered mature. 2.225 bb of U.S. corn exports
remain a questionable part of USDA's new estimates and early Friday, USDA said
last week's export sales and shipments of corn totaled 57.9 million bushels
(mb) and 54.1 mb respectively, a bearish combination overall that has total
corn shipments down 26% in 2017-18 from a year ago. Technically, weekly
momentum in corn remains bearish, and don't forget USDA Grain Stocks and
Prospective Plantings reports are scheduled for Thursday, March 29, before
markets close for the Good Friday holiday. DTN's National Corn Index closed at
$3.39 Thursday, priced 37 cents below the May contract and near its lowest
close in three weeks. In outside markets, the June U.S. dollar index is down
0.40 and the Dow Jones is down 37 points, still showing investor concerns about
an escalating trade war.
