Chicago Agriculture Commodities Finished Mixed


Chicago Board of Trade (CBOT) agriculture grains futures closed mixed Tuesday with Corn and Soybean prices falling on higher official crop estimates.

The most active Corn contract for December delivery dropped 6 cents, or 1.68%, to 3.515 bu.

December Wheat delivery rose 7.25 cents, or 1.67%, to 4.42 bu.

November Soybean fell 9.5 cents, or 0.99%, to 9.505 bu.

The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) Tuesday released its monthly report on domestic and world agricultural supply and demand. The USDA September crop report was deemed as Bearish as it adjusted the US Corn and Soybean yields upwards.

The USDA also pegged US MY 2017-2018 Corn stocks at 2.335-B bu compared with its August estimate of 2.27-B.

For Soybean, the US ending stocks are now estimated at 475-M bu, compared with the average analysts’ estimate of 442-M bu.

The US Wheat ending stocks were estimated at 933-M bu, the same as last month.

However, the USDA adjusted downwards its world Wheat ending stocks to 263.14-M tonnes. The new Wheat forecast pushed its futures higher, prompting a 1.69% increase.
