Soybeans to try extending gains

02/05/2013 @ 7:41am

The CME Group corn, soybean and wheat markets have strong potential to trade mixed Tuesday. 

The early calls for the commodities on Tuesday, February 5, 2013, are mixed. Corn is seen opening 1-2 cents lower. Soybeans are seen 2-4 cents higher and wheat steady.

In overnight trading, the March corn futures contract traded 1 cent lower at $7.33 per bushel. March soybean futures traded 2 cents higher at $14.91 per bushel, and March wheat traded steady at $7.63. For March soybean meal futures, the contract traded $1.60 per short ton higher at $435.90. March soybean oil futures traded $0.05 cent lower at $53.06. 

The outside markets are favorable for Tuesday's grain trade. The real factors driving the calls will be the mixed overnight markets.

The farmer 02/05/2013 @ 9:55am I hope everyone in the cbot and USDA watched the Super Bowl Sunday and the farmer commercial. Hopefully for 1 moment you thought about what we do for this country and you maybe realize that instead of working for investors you should be working for the farmer whose crops and livestock you are trading and we are the reason you all have jobs and the food on your plate.
