CBOT Corn’s active contract shed about 6% last week amid signs of rainfall and cooling temperatures. Also, reports that the Biden administration might grant biofuel waivers for struggling refiners took some shine off ethanol and soy oil-rich biodiesel.
CBOT Wheat prices fell -2.8% last week as an improving US G&O outlook helps ease crop concerns, with much needed rainfall forecasted for spring wheat areas.
Arabica prices fell -4.7% WOW. The Sep21 contract eased from recent highs to settle around USc 155/lb, with the Brazilian real relatively unfazed this week (unchanged at around 5.05/USD).
