Market Closes - September 14, 2016

Posted on Sep 14, 2016

CBOT futures closed with minimal changes after trading modest ranges. Corn and wheat closed at the high end of the range with strong buying in the final minutes. Huge corn and soybean crops are about to be harvested and world wheat supplies are record large. The 2-week forecast calls for above-normal temperatures, so crops should finish normally. Traders will be watching Thursday morning’s USDA Export Sales Report for signs of strong demand.

Live Cattle closed higher and near the day’s highs as prices trended up throughout the day. Midday boxed beef values were slightly higher on strong movement, but closed much lower. Choice dn 0.82 at 185.80; Select dn 0.98 at 180.32. LC futures were also supported by good packer margins.

The Lean Hog market turned even more ugly with sharp losses for the fourth straight day. Lower cash hog prices and technical selling with new contract lows pressured LH futures. Despite this bearishness, the pork market actually rose .56 to 82.01 on stronger belly and loin values.
