Closing Market Report- 10/18/21- Grains Mostly Higher Across the Board

Grains were higher across the board on the day on Monday with the exception being some slight profit taking in Minneapolis wheat. Corn, wheat and soy all rejected early weakness to close higher, with corn the strongest. U.S. corn and soybeans are the world’s cheapest offer. Wheat continues to gain ground on tightening U.S. and world stocks, although Minneapolis set back a penny. Lean hogs rebounded from early weakness on the back of a strong product market while cattle were under pressure.
