Chicago Agriculture Commodities Finished Lower


Chicago Board of Trade (CBOT) agriculture grains futures finished lower Monday with Soybean and Corn prices plunging more than 1%.

The most active Corn contract for December delivery fell 3.75 cents, or 1.06%, to 3.75 bu.

December Wheat delivery went down 3.5 cents, or 0.78%, to 4.4475 bu.

November Soybeans dropped 11 cents, or 1.14%, to 9.5725 bu.

Following an active weekend harvest, also due to profit-taking, Soybean futures started the week lower.

The CBOT Corn futures also suffered more than a 1% loss.
