Marketline Report for Wednesday, September 11th
SHELLADY ... "Let's talk about the grains. They're a big input for those grain prices. And, I think the interesting one would have been corn. Four days in a row, we had a new low. That didn't portend well, but after a $1.20 selloff from the highs to the lows and a USDA report around the corner, what do you think most traders did that were short and have benefited from that move? Well, you can see by the pricing on the boardl, so they were green across the board, we had some buyers come back into the market, I would say largely a lot of short-covers just to kind of get squared before the report, but also, you don't want to look that trading got in the face and kind of thumb your nose at the fact that you've just been given some decent profits. You might want to take them off before the WASDE report on Thursday because that could really shake things up."
