It appeared to be a carry-over from the previous session After the demand had been there was a period of profit-taking Late in the there was another strong buying move in the soybean interest and prices generally im- proved. There was little sup- in grains. At the wheat futures were about 10 Dec. 4 corn 4 Dec. 2 oats around 2 Dec. and soybeans some 7 Nov. 5.37. Pork bellies gained the limit of 150 points on the mercantile but live cattle clos- ed the and live hogs fell as much as 85 cents per hundredweight. Shell eggs were off 190 points Strength in soybeans and oil was attributed to overnight export but these also weakened later under li- quidation New buying and short- covering lifted meal and oil prices in the last few minutes as shorts were forced to cover positions. A strong rally in pork belly futures lifted prices to the limits after early losses had been posted. The buying was geared to a belief the hog runs this week will be light and the cash hog market steady to firm An abundant hog run Tues- day was instrumental in lower hog futures and live cattle fell for a similar reason Weakness in red meat prices worked on lower shell egg prices.
