DTN also has tracked the value of DDG, weekly. Why not use the DTN data to reflect better a plant probable margin? 140% vs 100% is a wide delta. Now if one follows the USDA spot IOWA prices for Corn and ethanol, this is a lot closer than the CME figures. I keep using 'probable', as no one knows exactly when a plant buys corn and sells ethanol exactly.
