Lower Corn, Wheat Markets Seen for Friday

04/04/2014 @ 7:59am

On Friday, the CME Group's corn, soybean, and wheat markets are expected to start mostly lower.


The early calls for the commodities on Friday, April 4, 2014, are mostly weaker. Corn is seen opening 2 to 4 cents lower, soybeans 3 to 5 cents higher, and wheat 7 to 9 cents lower.


In overnight trading, the May corn futures contract traded 3 1/2 cents lower at $4.96 per bushel. May soybean futures traded 3 cents higher at $14.78. The May wheat futures contract traded 9 3/4 cents lower at $6.66. For May soybean meal futures, the contract traded $0.60 per short ton lower at $479.50; May soybean oil futures traded $0.27 higher at $41.94.


The outside markets are unfavorable for Friday's grain trade. The real factors driving the calls will be the lower overnight markets.
