Midday Update

·         Strength in the dollar has been bearish commodities, but this morning they are rallying with the equity markets on ideas that it might help push the U.S. Federal Reserve to move toward stimulus as well. The Fed meets next Tuesday and Wednesday to discuss monetary policy.

·         Slow harvest progress in central and eastern portions of the Corn Belt is allowing demand to exceed the available supply, supporting both corn and soybean prices.

·         December corn is up 5 cents, but has stayed a couple cents below last week’s high to this point.

·         Soybeans are up 11 cents, but nearly a dime off their highs after failing to test the 40-day moving average.

·         Wheat is up 8 cents on rising global demand and improving chart signals.

·         Live cattle futures are moderately mixed and well off their highs after December ran out of buying interest after probing above its previous contract high.

·         Feeder cattle futures are down $0.85 to $2 on weaker chart signals and returning softness in the fat cattle market.
