Market Closes - September 11, 2017

Posted on Sep 11, 2017

CBOT futures closed mixed with minimal changes as traders prepared for tomorrow’s USDA crop reports.  The average trade guesses show yields, production and 2017/18 carryouts should be lower than last month’s forecasts. Generally speaking, grain and soybean supplies are plentiful and the speculative funds are reportedly short corn, wheat and soybean futures. A stronger US Dollar today weighed on the market.

Cattle futures closed mostly higher with little news to move the market.  Last week, the average cash fed steer priced at $104.66/cwt.  In boxed beef, Choice down 0.32 at 191.56; Select carcasses up 0.41 at 190.38.

Lean Hog futures closed lower on trade expectations for weaker cash markets. FOB Plant Pork dropped only .04 to 82.08, but this is sharply lower than the midday quote of 83.56.
