Wed Jan 14, 2015 03:20 PM CST Ethanol futures closed below the RBOB gasoline futures price for the first time since early December. The aggressive price surge in RBOB gasoline markets as well as continued sharp ethanol futures losses have put RBOB gasoline prices at a fractional premium to the ethanol market.
Fri Jan 9, 2015 03:59 PM CST The first full week of 2015 turned extremely weak as traders eroded the premium to gasoline markets, and also discounted front-month ethanol futures. This could continue to weaken buyer support over the near future.
Tue Jan 6, 2015 03:06 PM CST So far, 2015 has not looked kindly on the ethanol futures market which has shown a sharp loss in prices during early January. Ethanol still holds an aggressive premium to the weak RBOB gasoline market, but any short term-support based on holiday demand has passed.
