Market Update - March 5, 2013

Posted on Mar 5, 2013
CBOT futures are higher lead by old-crop soybean futures following reports of additional soybean export sales to China/others. The South American crop isn’t getting on the ships quick enough.

Livestock futures showed early strength following the pit opening at 9 am CDT, but have since sold off. The April Live Cattle contract currently is charting a bearish reversal so the recent $4.50 rally may be set for a correction.
