Market Update - September 15, 2014

Posted on Sep 15, 2014
CBOT futures were trading lower earlier today as the weekend frost in the Northern Plains didn’t materialize to any significant degree. But corn and soybeans have rallied this morning on some export sales and a strong price rise in soybean oil (for a second day). Wheat futures are not bouncing back like corn/beans. Wheat supplies are plentiful and the US is not competitive. Funds are huge shorts in wheat.

Cattle futures posted the day’s best price soon after the market opened at 9 am CT but are now trading lower. This trend in October LC started the end of last week. Choice beef is steady at midday.

Lean Hog futures are trading mixed with small changes as traders are uncertain where the market’s going.
