Find the Jan. low then Feb never takes out the Jan. low. Then in March corn is higher than both the Jan and Feb. high

What happened in 2012.  Just asking

I have not sold the remainder of old crop corn not forward contracted last winter

I usually finish old crop and do some new crop before spring planting

I will use your info as Feb is usually not such a good month

I used to worry along about Feb until an older farmer told me to never worry about Feb corn prices Seems like many times [not always] get a spring spike, not always the same time frame

Gotta be nimble and grab it

As of now, watching corn go down and have the usual feeling I should have acted sooner and done some thing

Oh well it is what it is

Tks much for the info

This guy has some great seasonal charts. They haven't been updated recently but most are still valid:

Here's an excellent one that shows the strength of Corn, starting just after harvest and going thru Feb, into early March and it includes those years well as the ones in between:

These charts show the same thing...........don't be short corn early in the year........don't be long after planting unless the weather is adverse.
