Market Closes - June 9, 2016

Posted on Jun 9, 2016

CBOT futures closed mostly lower today, taking a break from the strong rally that’s been going on for weeks. Weakness was mostly blamed on a wetter forecast, but a stronger US Dollar also weighed on commodity futures.  Soybean futures performed better thanks to export sales.

USDA will release its monthly WASDE report tomorrow, so traders will look at those changes in demand and stocks forecasts.

Cattle futures closed little changed in fairly narrow trading ranges, as traders wait for the cash market to develop on Friday. June Live Cattle futures remain at a sharp discount to last week’s cash price.  Futures should find support from a strong boxed beef market. Choice closed up 1.75 at 226.85; Select ended up 2.29 at 202.84. 

Lean hog futures closed very mixed. FOB Plant Pork dropped 1.24 to 87.50 on weaker loins, butts, picnics and ribs.
