Commodity Prices Fall Across the Board- and we have your SUNUP preview

Fri, 30 Sep 2011 14:11:37 CDT

Commodity Prices Fall Across the Board- and we have your SUNUP preview Commidity prices have seen a dip in prices across the board. According to Grain Marketing Specialist Dr. Kim Anderson, the Kansas City Board of Trade December wheat contracts are down about $1.70, while wheat cash prices are down $1.50. Corn prices are down as well, falling $1.50 along with soybeans.

Anderson says essentially all commodity prices have fallen out of bed in the past couple of weeks. Anderson also says that one of the main reasons for the drop in prices is the uncertainty in the economies around the world, especially the Eurpoean Union, Spain and Greece. A majority of the funds that have a large impact on the market have been liquidating their long positions, which is causing these declining prices.

When it comes to market trends, Anderson says while it is in a downward trend right now, the December contract has to close below $7.20 for the downward trend to continue.
