Long-term bull in the corn market

Smaller South American production and growing global corn demand keep the bulls alive.

Corn bulls are happy to see another round of strong weekly U.S. export sales. There's also continued concern surrounding the Argentine crop and perhaps fewer second-crop corn acres in Brazil.
