Afternoon Comments 04/24

Corn futures reacted poorly to good export numbers Thursday. The corn figure on the weekly USDA Export Sales report came in toward the upper end of the forecast range, while shipments were huge. Futures reacted little despite big wheat gains, possibly due to formidable overhead resistance. Futures ended the day rather weakly. May corn sagged 2.25 cents to $5.0125/bushel late Thursday, while December inched down 1.75 to $5.0275.
