CHICAGO - In early trading today on the Chicago Board of Trade (CBOT), agricultural commodities experienced mixed movements with Dec wheat rising to $5.50 per bushel and Dec corn climbing to $4.70 per bushel. However, as the day progressed, prices shifted. Corn for December delivery fell by 1.4% to $4.68 a bushel, influenced by favorable weather prospects in Brazil that could benefit crop conditions. Soybeans followed a similar trend, dropping to $13.44 per bushel.

While wheat initially saw an increase during early trading, it slightly decreased later in the day to $5.52 1/2 per bushel. The dip in wheat prices comes amid an improved global supply outlook, as better yields in Europe and Australia were noted by Commerzbank (ETR:CBKG).

In contrast, the livestock market showed divergent trends at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange where Dec live cattle dropped by 1.45 cents to $1.7480/pound, pointing towards a weaker beef market. On the flip side, Dec lean hogs rose by .88 cent to $.7115/pound, indicating stronger pork values.

The U.S. Drought Monitor has reported severe drought conditions in Louisiana, posing a threat to cotton-crop plantings which could extend its impact to corn and soybean acreage come spring.

Looking ahead, market participants are gearing up for key reports that could influence commodity prices further. On Monday, the USDA is set to release grains export inspections at 4 p.m. and crop progress at 9 p.m. UTC. Additionally, Wednesday will bring the EIA's ethanol production figures at 3:30 p.m., followed by USDA's Cold Storage report at 8 p.m., events that traders will be watching closely for potential impacts on market dynamics.
