Market Update - September 9, 2013

Posted on Sep 9, 2013
CBOT futures rallied Sunday evening on disappointing weekend rainfall and warm temperatures to start the week.  However, prices weakened overnight and have been under pressure since pit trade opened at 930 am CT.  The September corn and soybean contract are especially weak, signaling that concerns may be waning about running short of old-crop supplies as corn harvest spreads to more areas.

KC and Chicago Wheat futures are pressing on chart support while the MGEX wheat contract has moved to a new low.

The cattle market continues to look for fundamental direction.  Light cash trade last week was mostly at steady prices. Early futures strength today has given way and the LC contracts are now at/near the day’s lows.

Lean Hog futures are mixed, holding the huge gains made last week. Last week’s slaughter was short, so traders will watch the receipts closely.
