CBOT futures closed mixed with KC Wheat rising a sharp four percent and Chicago wheat up two percent. Wheat rallied on the severe cold and technical buying. December KC Wht surpassed October highs, hitting levels not seen since August 5. Corn rallied on spillover support from the wheat and slow farmer selling. Soybean futures traded very narrow ranges following yesterday’s large drop. Meal gained on soybean oil as traders unwound spread positions.

U.S. soybean harvest is 85 pct complete, compared to 92 pct for the 5-year average. North Dakota is 74% and Missouri is 72%.

 

Cattle futures closed little changed and remain near their 6-month highs. Cattle futures remain supported by firm boxed beef values and ideas the cash cattle market will rise to the December LC price level. Choice gained 1.91 to 240.50 and Select rose 2.54 to 216.23.

Lean Hog futures closed sharply higher as pork values posted large gains again today. The December LH gapped higher off chart support.
