Grain markets mostly higher this morning | Friday, June 25, 2022


The grain markets were lower to start the night but have now turned mostly higher. The massive fund liquidation may be over. I do see end user buying and have noticed that we have more normal trading ranges so far today,

July corn is up 5 cents. December corn is up 12 cents. July soybeans are trading 5 cents higher, and November soybeans are down 5 cents. Wheat futures are 2 to 13 cents higher.

The key to watch today is if the markets are not only close higher but close near the highs of the day. My corn chart shows lows about every 25 to 28 days, and we are in the ideal timeframe for that low.

Around the world in the stock, commodity markets

The stock market in China is up 0.9%. Japan is up 1.3%, and European stocks are up 1.2%.

On the Dalian Commodity Exchange in China, corn futures are 10 cents lower at $10.90, and soybean futures are 30 cents lower at $25.50. On the Matif Exchange in Europe, wheat futures are 9 cents a bushel higher at $11.91.

In outside markets, crude oil is $1.50 per barrel. The US stock market is higher with the Dow up 378 points.

In the livestock markets, August hogs are up $1.35 at $105.02. August cattle are up 27 cents at $134.22, and August feeders are down $1.25 at $173.55.
