COT Report Shows Funds Heavy On Corn Spreads

Feb 03, 2012

This afternoon's COT Report showed managed money heavily invested in corn spreads, with nearly double the positions of both the "swap dealer" and "other reportable" portion. You can see from the chart below that spread trading among the funds has increased two-fold since August, and this week's COT report showed they are adding on new spread positions at an increasing rate.

Intra-commodity spreads, especially the old crop / new crop corn spread seem to be a hot topic right now, so it is not surprising to see this explosion in fund spreading. With this large quantity of managed money spreads in the market, traders should keep in mind what will happen to these spreads when funds "un-wind" their positions.

If you are a producer who would like to chart or trade these spreads using live quotes in your home today, take a demo of the Firetip trading platform!
