USDA flashed another new crop corn sale to China, as private exporters had reported selling 680,000 MT this morning. 

Ahead of the May WASDE update the trade is looking for USDA to drop old crop world corn stocks to 279.4 MMT. That would be down 4.5 MMT from the April figure reflecting an expected 6 MMT cut to Brazil’s production. For new crop traders anticipate USDA to show global corn stocks between 269 and 309 MMT, with an average of estimates at 284.
