Chicago Agriculture Commodities Finished Lower


Chicago Board of Trade (CBOT) agriculture grains futures finished lower Thursday with Corn futures sagging more than 1.5% on technical selling and expectations of a US bumper harvest.

The most active Corn contract for December delivery dropped 5.75 cents, or 1.59%, to 3.5525 bu.

December Wheat delivery fell 8.5 cents, or 1.91%, to 4.3725 bu.

November Soybean went down 2.25 cents, or 0.23%, to 9.6875 bu.

Wheat faced pressure from weak worldwide demand for US supplies and a round of profit taking following a run-up to the 3-week high marked Wednesday.

Soybean ended in negative territory after trading higher for much of the day.

Corn’s drop to session lows spilled over to Soybean futures late in the session. The Soybean market’s failure to hold support above Wednesday’s high also added to the Bearish tone.

Have a terrific weekend.
