Corn Price Outlook

Corn prices have risen over the last month, buoyed by strong ethanol production in the U.S. since the start of the year and an optimistic outlook for Brazilian ethanol demand. This is boosting consumption of corn, which is used in ethanol production. Prices were given further impetus after a recent USDA report revised down both the U.S. and global stock forecasts for 2017/18, and lowered its global production estimate on reduced output from Argentina and Ukraine. Corn traded at USD 338 cents per bushel on 9 February. The price was 4.5% higher than on the same day last month and was up 4.6% on a year-to-date basis. However, it was 3.7% lower than on the same day last year.
