Corn Epiphany 




For year-end, it's been impressive how ethanol marketers have monitored the ethanol to gasoline futures premium in relation to the corn market.  Entering 2015, inclusive of current strong dollar and interest rates, there does not seem widespread expectations that ethanol margins will repeat the way we went into 2014.


Here are 2015 crop budgets that include DDG price review along with 2014 corn price comparisons.


Will March 2016 corn futures close out the year higher than March 2015 closed out? ($4.00 - Yes, contrary opinion)  



 The CFO Systems Corn Crush


The CFO Systems Corn Crush  is now $0.51/gallon of ethanol on January 7, 2015.
*Using nearby CBOT corn futures, CBOT ethanol futures, USDA corn oil prices and ethanol industry conversion standards.
