Corn & Soybeans Rally, While Coffee Goes Down

December 17, 2011 at 1:55 by Vladimir Vyun

Corn and soybeans gained on the concerns about the adverse weather in Argentina and Brazil. Forecasters said that hot, dry weather may hurt crops in the South African countries. Corn climbed from $5.7825 to close at $5.8275 per bushel on CBoT. Soybeans advanced from $11.1225 to $11.2975 per bushel.

Coffee fell as inventories grew. ICE-monitored stockpiles rose for the fifth consecutive week and have increased 20 percent since November 1. The prices may still rebound as the forecast of the US Department of Agriculture showed that the balance of supply and demand may result in deficit. Coffee prices declined from $2.1340 to $2.1095 per pound on ICE.
