Corn futures eye lowest finish since 2016 as USDA forecasts rise in plantings
Corn futures may settle Tuesday at their lowest since 2016 after the U.S. Department of Agriculture estimated U.S. corn planted area for 2020 at 97 million acres, up 8% from last year. The market was looking for smaller planted acreage, with average estimates at 94.328 million acres, according to Daniels Trading. A separate USDA report revealed that total U.S. corn stocks stood at 7.95 billion bushels on March 1, down 8% from the same date a year earlier. The corn stocks figure was lower than an average estimate of 8.125 billion bushels, according to Daniels Trading. The most-active May corn contract extended earlier losses, trading down 6 3/4 cents, or 2%, to $3.34 1/2 a bushel in Chicago. A settlement below $3.35 would be the lowest since September 2016, according to Dow Jones Market Data.

Fed establishes new repo facility with foreign central banks
The Federal Reserve on Tuesday said it was establishing a temporary repo facility for foreign central banks that will help make U.S. dollars available in their jurisdictions. In the new facility, the central banks will be able to temporarily exchange their U.S. Treasurys held at the Fed for U.S. dollars. "This facility should help support the smooth functioning of the U.S. Treasury market by providing an alternative temporary source of U.S. dollars other than sales of securities in the open market," the Fed said. It should also ease strains in global U.S. dollar funding markets, the central bank said. All central banks and foreign monetary authorities with accounts at the Fed are eligible.
