Market Update - September 13, 2013

Posted on Sep 13, 2013
CBOT futures are down strongly with losses looking bigger because of the late-day rally yesterday. Despite these losses, prices remain above chart support areas.  Profit-taking in soybean futures may be the impetus given how close price was to chart resistance (double-top) in the November contract.  USDA reports were bearish for corn and wheat yesterday.

Live Cattle futures have been trading in narrow ranges this week on a lack of fundamental news.  October LC bounced higher after closing at a new low for this move yesterday.  Also the cash market reportedly traded at steady money to last week.

Today’s economic data was mostly negative so energy, precious metals and Treasury yields are lower.
