Lower farm markets Thursday

10/20/2011 @ 7:23am

With some recovery in lower overnight trading, the CME Group farm futures prices are expected to remain mostly lower for Thursday's day-session.

The Early Calls for the commodities on Thursday, October 20, 2011, are mostly lower. 

In overnight electronic trading, the Dec. corn futures contract traded 2 cents lower at $6.36 1/2 per bushel. The Nov. soybean futures contract traded 4 3/4 cents lower at $12.20 1/4 per bushel. The Dec. wheat futures contract traded 1/2 of a cent higher at $6.20. For Dec. soymeal futures, the contract traded $0.50 per short ton lower at $318.80 and Dec. soyoil $0.15 lower at $51.33. 

The outside markets are supportive for Thursday's grain trade. The real factors driving the calls will be the mostly lower overnight markets.

Meanwhile, USDA releases bearish Weekly Export Sales Thursday.
