CBOT futures closed mostly lower led by KC wheat, which was the big gainer yesterday. Wheat futures generally erased Tuesday’s gains. There was a lack of market news except for negative midday comments regarding the US/China trade negotiations. The U.S. equities market reacted to it and then fully recovered. Uncertainty will persist regarding the trade deal.  

The cattle market finally snapped today from cash prices being sharply discounted to futures. Even as boxed beef values firmed, cattle futures dropped sharply. Light cash trade was reported around $115.00. Choice gained 1.84 to 242.34 and Select rose 1.30 to 217.53.

Lean Hog futures also closed lower with the nearby December LH down sharply, settling at chart support. FOB Plant Pork fell 1.51 to 87.02. Ham value fell over 4%; loins dropped 3%.
