Al Kluis, Kluis Advisors, says investors will be watching for today’s USDA Weekly Crop Progress Report and tomorrow’s June Supply/Demand Report.

“The USDA Weekly Crop Progress Report today will show nationwide corn planting at about 85% complete. I also look for the initial report on corn conditions to show that about 60% of the corn will be rated good to excellent, since the USDA only rates the corn that is emerged,” Kluis told customers in a daily note.

Kluis added, “We could be set up for a bearish USDA Crop Production Report on Tuesday. I doubt if the USDA will cut the corn crop in the June 11 report as much as the private estimates are expecting. If the USDA uses the same methodology as 1995 and 2012, then the USDA may report a corn crop that is around 14 billion bushels.”
