Grain Futures—Soybean futures were sharply lower from the opening bell to finish lower by 34 and looks to re- test the recent lows. Corn futures fell in sympathy with beans to finish lower by 10 cents to close around 6.32 a bushel. Wheat futures closed weaker as well to close down 5 cents at 6.44 a bushel. The weaker Euro currency and better growing conditions down South put pressure on these markets today. The USDA crop report in 2 weeks has traders wondering if Brazil will have another record crop.

Metal Futures--  A very quiet day in the metals today with gold futures finishing down only 2 dollars to close around 1,730 an ounce. Silver rallied from early lows to finish down by 33 cents to close around 33.46 an ounce. Copper futures which have had a nice rally in recent weeks pulled back by 630 points to close at 3.83. Platinum futures were also lower by 7 dollars .I still believe that these markets are going higher propelled by a lower dollar in the coming months.

Energy FuturesCrude oil futures for March delivery were lower by around 80 cents today to close around 98.80 a barrel. The stronger dollar was to blame for the weakness in most commodities today. Heating oil futures were also lower by 2 cents to close around 3.05 a gallon; with winter winding down heating oil could see some weakness in the near future. Unleaded gasoline futures were down by 5 cents to close at 2.87 a gallon reversing most of Friday’s gains. The crude oil is at the lower end of the trading range and has rallied from this price many times; let’s see if tomorrow brings the same results.
