Dollar strength probably weighed on corn prices Thursday. The U.S. dollar surged to a 14-month high overnight and is close to its highest levels since spring 2010. Greenback strength raises the cost of U.S. commodities on international markets, thereby hurting their competitiveness. Prices typically adjust downward as a result. The weekly Export Sales result for corn was mediocre. December corn futures dipped 3.5 cents to $3.3825/bushel at Thursday’s close, while May sagged 3.25 to $3.5925.
