Corn, Soy Called to Open Lower as Demand Drops; Wheat May Fall
What follows are opening calls for U.S. grain and oilseed markets, which open at 5 p.m. on the Chicago Board of Trade.
-- Corn futures may open 1 cent to 2 cents a bushel lower on the Chicago Board of Trade on speculation that a recent rally which sent prices up 12 percent in the past three sessions may deter overseas buyers, said Larry Glenn, an analyst at Frontier Ag in Quinter, Kansas.
-- Soybean futures may open down 1 cent to 2 cents a bushel in Chicago as rising prices may curb demand, Glenn said. Soybean- oil futures are expected to open 0.2 cent to 0.3 cent lower per pound, and soybean-meal futures may open $1 to $2 lower per 2,000 pounds.
-- Wheat futures may open 2 cents to 3 cents a bushel lower on the CBOT, the Kansas City Board of Trade and the Minneapolis Grain Exchange, Glenn said.
