Rough Start to Busy Week

Grains are trading lower as weather and demand news wait on the horizon. (audio)

Good weather through the weekend is expected to hold until late on Tuesday when showers move across the Midwest, slowing harvest progress. Grains are trading lower today as the market waits patiently for an export data dump coming on Thursday. The Federal Reserve opens its October meeting tomorrow with expectation that poor economic news will hold of any tapering of bond buying until at least spring.

Farm Futures Market Analyst Paul Burgener reports on morning grain trade. Listen to him using the audio player on this page.
