Afternoon Comments 10/20


Corn futures posted a firm Monday close. Forecasts for benign harvest weather and a disappointing result on the weekly USDA Export Inspections report weighed on corn futures to start the week. However, CBOT prices staged a late comeback, which probably reflected the slow harvest pace to this point, short-covering and to technical support around current levels. December corn futures settled 0.25 cent higher at $3.4825/bushel Monday afternoon, while May inched up 0.5 to $3.705.
