Market Closes - October 6, 2013

Posted on Nov 6, 2013
Closing prices were little changed again today with market news not significant enough in light of the impending USDA reports on Friday morning.

Chicago Wheat futures rallied 60-70 cents this fall, but are now with about 15 cents of the lower starting price.

This weekly December 2013 Corn chart shows the history of this contract. Unfortunately, it’s now within 20 cents of its lifetime low.

Cattle futures closed little changed as traders wait for cash markets to work.  Last week’s price was generally $132/cwt.  Boxed beef values were mixed today with Choice carcasses down 0.89 at 204.56 and Select up 0.64 at $190.62/cwt.

Lean Hog futures closed lower on weaker cash hog and pork markets.
