As July 4th 3-day weekends often lead to, the CBOT futures market saw huge price moves today at the close; unfortunately, the direction was DOWN. Weekend rains in parts of the Corn Belt with good prospects this week weighed on the market. Other negative factors include a strong dollar, collapsing energy and metal futures, and rumors of China cancelling soybean purchases. This afternoon’s USDA crop condition ratings were slightly below reported trade expectations; this might lead to a bounce when markets reopen. The sharp move in commodity futures was probably magnified by sell-stop orders and fund liquidation.

Cattle futures closed moderately lower across the board in sympathy with the general commodity sell-off today. The stronger US Dollar and more talk of recession in the U.S. and around the world weighed on the market. Boxed beef values were mixed with Choice up .84 at 264.66 and Select down .60 to 239.87. Beef movement was light at 109 loads.

Lean hog futures closed mixed with the July/Aug/Oct contracts ending higher. LH was supported by a sharply higher pork cutout. FOB Plant Pork closed up 5.73 at 114.48. Belly value rose 20 to 170; butt value increased 7 to 153; and picnic value was up 3 at 76. Pork movement was strong at 306 loads.
