Grains Try To Fight Bearish Tide

Markets post light gains in overnight session; Nervous financial markets continue to cloud sentiment. (audio)

Markets are posting light gains in the overnight session, getting a bit of a bounce after Friday's mostly disappointing trade. Bearish production and carryout estimates from USDA continue to weigh on corn and soybeans. Wheat got a little more positive news, which helped winter wheat contracts reverse higher. Nervous financial markets continue to cloud sentiment, with commodities in general falling out of favor. Government offices close today the Columbus Day holiday, but most markets are open.

Farm Futures Senior Editor Bryce Knorr talks with Mick Kjar of Valley View Live TV in Fargo.
