Quiet markets wait for yield data

Futures falter after buying fades. (Video report)

Grain futures are mixed this morning, after attempts to firm faded after trading in Asia wound down. Rains from Hurricane Irma will spread as far north as the Ohio River Valley this week, but most of the weather talk in grains focuses on slow crop development. A shift towards warmer and wetter weather could extended the growing season in some areas. Markets could remain choppy into Tuesday’s USDA reports, which are expected to show lower yields than the government found in August.
