Tue Sep 30, 2014 02:41 PM CDT Losses in the ethanol market through September have been substantial as the industry has faced growing inventory levels, expanded production and eroding demand. The combination led to prices below $1.60 per gallon heading into the fourth quarter of the year.
Wed Sep 24, 2014 03:07 PM CDT Ethanol production eased from last week's level but this short-term move did little to stabilize prices. Ethanol futures posted moderate losses Wednesday with traders focused on large stockpiles.
Thu Sep 18, 2014 03:20 PM CDT Given the sharp tumble lower in ethanol futures prices over the last three weeks, it is likely that additional pressure will develop through the next several weeks. This will likely add additional uncertainty to production margins of many ethanol plants, as inventories are likely to grow.
Wed Sep 17, 2014 03:02 PM CDT Ethanol prices posted sharp losses Wednesday with all news coming from the latest EIA report turned bearish. Stable corn prices under $3.50 per bushel in futures markets are sparking increased plant production while margins remain good. But this is adding to inventory situations at an alarming pace.
Fri Sep 12, 2014 03:46 PM CDT The ethanol market has remained incredibly strong through most of the year, building on firming demand growth in gasoline month over month based on increasing driving activity, and falling corn prices. But ethanol prices have been hit extremely hard through early September, accounting for double-digit price losses through this last week.
