DJ CBOT Review: Wheat Ends Down, Corn Mostly Flat; Soy Firm
CHICAGO (Dow Jones)--Chicago Board of Trade wheat futures ended lower Friday on speculative sales and disappointing weekly U.S. wheat export sales; corn ended about unchanged after setting fresh contact lows; and soybean futures closed firm on solid weekly U.S. soy export sales and NOPA crush data, brokers said.

In unusual late trading on the CBOT grain trading floor, Goldenberg Hehmeyer sold about 14,000 CBOT March corn, while Refco Inc. bought about 4,500 CBOT December corn, 5,000 CBOT March corn and 4,500 CBOT December wheat.


CBOT Corn futures finished at nearly unchanged levels, recovering from earlier losses as late commission house buying and local short covering on the close helped reverse earlier losses after several contracts set new life-of- contract lows, sources said.

December corn settled unchanged at $2.03 1/2 cents per bushel, March corn also ended unchanged at $2.16 1/4 per bushel and May corn settled unchanged at $2.24 per bushel. All three contracts set new life-of-contract lows in mid-morning trade.

"Late commission house buying caught the locals short and they had to scramble to cover their positions late, a floor analyst said. "Besides that, there was no fresh news," he added.

Soy Complex

CBOT soybean futures ended mostly higher in rangebound trade, garnering support from solid weekly export sales and NOPA crush data, traders said.

November soybeans ended 1 1/4 cents higher at $5.89 1/2, December soymeal settled $1.10 lower at $176.50 a short ton, while December soyoil ended 14 points higher at 24.03 cent a pound.

The market traded mixed for most of the day, with underlying demand support underpinning prices, while light hedge pressure and overhead technical pressure keeping a lid on prices, analysts said.


U.S. wheat futures settled lower on fund sales, disappointing weekly U.S. wheat export sales and good U.S. winter wheat growing weather, brokers said.

CBOT December wheat settled down 4 1/2 cents at $3.39 per bushel; KCBT December wheat ended down 7 1/4 cents at $3.81; and MGE December wheat settled down 6 1/2 cents at $3.87 1/4.
