Chicago Agricultural Commodities Up On Short Covering

Chicago agricultural commodities rose Wednesday, as modest short covering,  forecasts for dry weather provided support.

The most active Corn contract for Dec delivery rose 2.5 cents, or 0.68%, to 3.7075 bu.

Nov Soybean rose 18.75 cents, or 1.77%, to 10.765 bu.

Sept Wheat rose 6.25 cents, or 1.19%, to 5.3075 bu.

Soybean contract for Aug delivery led the gains on tightening cash supplies in Aug and early Sept crops.

Corn and Wheat trading volume was thin with modest short covering after forecasts showed less rain in August across the Midwest.

Transportation costs in the United States doubled in the past 10 days. Many feared that rising costs would hurt US export competitiveness, as Black Sea Corn price for October and November is 0.50 bu cheaper than that of the US Corn.
