Corn futures posted 5 to 6 1/4 cent losses in most contracts on Tuesday. December posted a new contract low at $3.57. The USDA reported a private export sale of 113,000 MT of corn to Egypt for 17/18 (60,000 MT) and 18/19 (53,000 MT). They also reported a cancellation of 152,000 MT of 17/18 sorghum to Mexico. The average trade guess for old crop US corn stocks in Thursday’s USDA S&D report is for a 13 mbu jump to 2.115 bbu. New crop US stocks are also seen higher, mainly from the increase to acreage in June 29’s Acreage report. CONAB updated their 17/18 Brazil corn production numbers this morning showing a 2.21 MMT reduction to the second crop to 56.01 MMT, with the total crop down 2.08 MMT to 82.92 MMT.
