Market Update - September 10, 2014

Posted on Sep 10, 2014
CBOT futures are little changed as traders position themselves for tomorrow’s Crop Report which should see estimates greater than August’s numbers but maybe not as high as private firms foresee final production estimates. Outside markets are negative with a stronger US dollar, rising Treasury yields and new lows in the oil and gasoline futures markets.

Cattle futures are down sharply after trading higher overnight. Reasons for the sharp downside reversal are not available at this time but possibly box beef values have slipped. Technical selling has probably exaggerated the decline.
