Grain Futures Retreat with Broad Market Decline

Grain Futures Retreat with Broad Market Decline

Prices move lower overnight in follow-through selling as market prepares for Friday's USDA reports. (Audio)

Red ink is flowing across a variety of markets again this morning, from stocks to soybeans. While grain futures are pressured by good growing conditions and consolidation ahead of Friday’s USDA reports, financial markets continue to reel from last week’s news the Federal Reserve may begin withdrawing financial stimulus. Worries about slowing growth in China are also in the mix, impacting both financial and agricultural trade.

Farm Futures Senior Editor Bryce Knorr talks about the markets with Mick Kjar, Valley News Live TV, Fargo.
