Market Commentary

Afternoon Comments 10/30

Thursday’s corn export data was rather disappointing. Corn futures rose slightly Thursday morning despite the soy setback from Wednesday’s late highs. Yellow grain prices later followed beans lower, due in part to likely trader disappointment with the results of the weekly USDA Export Sales report. December corn futures sagged 1.25 cents to $3.74/bushel at their Thursday settlement; May also lost 1.25 to $3.9575.
