ROGGENSACK ... "An update on the corn fundamentals. They are quite bullish, but boy the funds have been aggressive sellers here recently. We look for a bottom here very quickly in the corn market. Commitment to traders report as of March 5th showed managed money fund traders net short 176,000 contracts. That's up 72,000 in just one week. Again, that's through March 5th. Since March 5th open interest up near 73,000 contracts. So, the record's at 230,000, so we can't be too far from the record net-short in corn."
