Chicago Agriculture Commodities Finished Mixed


Chicago agriculture commodities finished mixed Monday with wheat posting sharp losses due to a firmer USD.

The most active Corn contract for December delivery went up 2 cents, or 0.58%, to 3.45 bu.

December Wheat delivery fell 5.25 cents, or 1.23%, to 4.22 bu.

January Soybean dropped 0.5 cent, or 0.05% to 9.90 bu.

CBOT brokers reported that funds bought 2,500 contracts of Corn, while selling 3,200 contracts of Soybean and 1,700 contracts of Wheat.

A stronger USD has made CBOT Wheat futures less competitive at international market with ample inventories.

As a result, the prices plunged Monday following a 2-day rally last week.

The US Soybean export sales are falling behind the official forecast looking for a 4% increase for the crop year as Brazil continues to offer old crop Soybean through December.

Short covering again supported the Corn futures, which closed with moderate rise.
