Market Closes - September 15, 2016

Posted on Sep 15, 2016

CBOT futures closed lower except for the soy complex. Corn and wheat futures were weighed on by disappointing weekly export sales reports this morning. Soybean futures made a corrective bounce after big losses on Monday and Tuesday. December Meal futures are testing contract lows with the downtrend intact.

Cattle futures closed higher with the October LC contract gapping higher; resistance comes in at 108.45, the August high. Buyers were encouraged by higher boxed beef values and signs the cash cattle market will trade steady to higher from last week. Choice up 0.47 at 186.27; Select down 1.49 at 178.83.

Lean Hog futures traded to new contract lows before a late-day rally resulted in positive closes. The gains were minimal and limited by a sharply lower pork market. FOB Plant Pork was down a sharp 1.78 to 80.23. The number of hogs coming to market are up markedly this week.
