Market Closes - August 9, 2016

Posted on Aug 9, 2016

CBOT futures closed mixed on a lack of significant market news.  Late Monday, USDA reported corn and soybean condition ratings remain very positive. Corn traded narrow ranges and closed at/near the day’s lows. Soybean futures closed higher in the middle of the range.  November Soybeans peaked at the $10.00 resistance mark – a psychological level and the 20-day moving average. Soybeans were supported by more export announcements. Traders and producers alike anticipate Friday’s Crop Production Report.

Cattle futures closed higher led by the feeder market. Live Cattle were also supported by ideas the cash market will be higher on smaller market receipts. Boxed beef prices helped too. Choice up 0.72 at 199.89; Select up 0.22 at 192.06.

Lean Hog futures closed lower, pressured by weaker cash hog and pork prices amid large receipts. FOB Plant Pork dropped .69 to 76.40 with weakness in belly, loin and butt prices. October LH futures traded both sides of unchanged but closed near the day’s lows.
