Chicago Agriculture Commodities Finished Mixed

Chicago Agriculture Commodities Finished Mixed


Chicago agriculture commodities finished mixed Thursday with Corn futures falling to new contract lows as lower-than-expected weekly export sales and abundant supplies weighed on the market.

The most active Corn contract for December delivery went down 1.75 cents, or 0.52%, to 3.365 bu.

December Wheat delivery rose 1.5 cents, or 0.36%, to 4.215 bu.

January Soybean dropped 4.25 cents, or 0.44% to 9.72 bu.

Soybean also declined on disappointing weekly US Department of Agriculture (USDA) export sales data and as improving crop weather in Brazil raised prospects that the world’ s Top Soybean exporter would produce another bumper crop.

Wheat futures edged higher in a modest rebound from Wednesday’ s technically driven slide and on expectations for reduced plantings in Europe.

As for international markets

Egypt’s General Authority For Supply Commodities is tendering for world Wheat for early Y 2018 shipment and received 6 offers from exporters. The lowest price is 194.55/tonne, which is up about 2.00 from their tender of last week.

Russian FOB wheat prices are down 1 to 1.50/tonne, so the exporters added 3 to 3.5/tonne to account for phytosanitary uncertainty regarding ergot and other Wheat quality specs.

Have a terrific weekend
