Corn History

The corn was a human invention as this plant does not exist naturally in the wild. It can survive if planted and protected by humans. Most scientists believe that corn was developed by Mexicans at least 7000 years ago. The Corn Futures contract is the world’s largest agricultural futures contract and started trading in 1877 at the Chicago Board of Trade.

When is the best season to trade corn?

The corn market is open all year long, but as corn is seasonal its high trading season is mostly during the summer period. Corn is distributed and sold during the winter months, which leaves the summer to speculate the growth value, estimated numbers and more. The first and most influential speculations were published in March by the US department of agriculture (USDA). They provide the expected amount of acres planted by the farmers which naturally will impact the corn price in the markets.

What can move the price of corn?

The price of corn can be affected by factors such as changing weather conditions, distribution costs, geopolitics, global health issues and the strength of the US dollar. Also, the price of corn is moved by factors that relate to supply and demand.

Corn trading FAQ

It is important for traders to pay attention to the seasons and the weather. Traders and corn farmers should have the same mindset. In the winter months, action in the corn markets is fairly muted. When the spring arrives the market starts again. Keep in mind that throughout the summer period trading can be volatile as every weather report in the corn-producing regions has the potential to move corn prices in one direction or another abruptly.
