A Mixed Week for Positions

October 31, 2010 02:03 PM

Non-commercial (large speculator) traders decreased their net long corn position by 1,300 contracts but increased soybeans by almost 4,400 and lightened their short wheat position by almost 6,000.

Meanwhile, commercial firms increased net short positions in all three commodities: by a modest 138 contracts in corn, a hefty 16,500 in soybeans and 12,100 in wheat.

Index traders joined everyone else in selling corn, reducing their net long position by more than 6000 contracts. They added over 3,000 each in corn and soybeans, however.
