Falling corn, soybean prices Friday

08/31/2012 @ 7:34am

The CME Group corn, soybean and wheat markets are expected to react negatively Friday to lower overnight prices and the news that Russia will not install a grain export ban. 

The Early Calls for the commodities on Friday, August 31, 2012, are lower. Corn is seen opening 1-2 cents lower, soybeans 5-7 cents lower, and wheat 7- 9cents lower.

In overnight trading, the Dec. corn traded 1 3/4 cents lower at $8.06 3/4.  Nov. soybean futures traded 5 1/4 cents lower at $17.58 1/4 per bushel. Dec. wheat futures traded 7 3/4 cents lower at $8.95.

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