Hot, Dry China Weather Offering Corn Futures Support

The potential of low supply in the United States has corn prices pushing up, and add to that the hot, dry weather in China, and you have a couple of factors working together to offer corn prices support.

Although not proven yet, the perception that corn supplies will not be near as high as estimated has drawn traders to the market, and pushed up corn prices as a result.

For China, they could end up buying corn from the U.S. if the weather has indeed been as devastating on the corn crop in China as thought.

So for now, corn has entered into a bullish stage, at least until a firmer grip on supply is confirmed either way.
