Down across the board yesterday. Soybeans -6.00 cents, Corn -1.50 cent, Wheat -6.50 cents in Chicago, -6.00 cents in Kansas and -4.75 cents in Minneapolis. There’s a clear nervousness approaching the tonight’s stock report. On the other side of the Pond, MATIF was a couple of ticks down, CME EU flat and London Feed +£0.30.
In Chicago, funds sold 4,000 lots of Wheat, same for Soybeans and same for Corn! Neat!
Night session is still on the downside, -3.25 cents on Soybeans, a tick down on Corn and -1.50 cent on Chicago and Kansas Wheat while Minneapolis is up +1.25 cent. Heading to 200 cents premium again? MATIF is ticking a couple of ticks down, CME EU flat line and London Feed -£0.35.
Long story short: waiting the report / Friday mood.
