Grains Poised to Start Higher

Grains Poised to Start Higher

Overnight trade moves positive for wheat, corn and soybeans, but markets watching the weather. (audio)

We could see profit-taking pop out of anywhere, given the light trade this time of year. The final three trading days of 2011 are now underway, which gets a quick review by Tom Leffler, Leffler Commodities, LLC, who is sitting in for Farm Futures Market Analyst Arlan Suderman, talks trade with the Ag Network. He doesn't see a lot of news to work from and given the light trading week, the market could turn on a dime. A slip in the stock market - which is a concern - has Leffler watching the markets closely.

In addition, the cotton market is running higher today too.

Tom Leffler is the co-founder/owner of Leffler Commodities, LLC and Leffler Ag Consulting, LLC located in Augusta, KS, with a branch in western Kansas.
