Grain Futures Continue to Fall Friday

Corn and soybeans, after rebounding slightly overnight, resumed losses from yesterday’s session on signs of weak demand and increased overseas production.

Corn sales to overseas buyers in the week that ended October 29 fell 22%, soybeans sales dropped 69% to a marketing-year low, and wheat sales plunged 85%, the U.S. Department of Agriculture said in a report yesterday. Traders also may be squaring positions ahead of next week’s USDA World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates (WASDE) report, analysts said.
