DTN Closing Grain Comments 09/27 13:46
Financial Markets Recover, Propping up Corn and Soy Futures Only Briefly
Equities, energies, and metals all bounced early on Tuesday, following the
recent financial market meltdown and the Federal Reserve's aggressive interest
rate hike. The U.S. dollar paused its nonstop rally to give grain and soy
markets a much-needed boost. Wheat futures led the market higher, but the
bullish euphoria appears short-lived, as the Fed is expected to remain hawkish
in coming months. The equity markets ended up selling off late in the session,
while the U.S. Dollar Index again approached the high. Corn and soybeans could
not hold early gains, with beans closing lower.
