Oilier commodity futures also closed generally lower on selling influenced, in part, on the weakness in the soybean complex. The loss in the soy- bean pit was 20 cents a bushel and in meal a ton. The three commodities in I lie complex were under some mild selling pressure on the opening, but buyers were about as active as sellers. Karly selling was attributed to some trade reports that weather was generally lair and harvesting work was mov- ing along. Corn and oats showed some weakness on the opening along with sovbeans and when the selling pace quickened in the complex corn and oats fell back heavily. W heat futures gained around six cents early, fell hack 16 cents, but recovered near the close. At the close, soybeans were down the limit of 20 cents a bushel. November 6.05: wheat was eight cents lower. December 4.73: corn was down nine cents. December '2 44 and oats were down around 5" 2 cents. December l.21'i. drain quoiiiuons Thursday: -i. Dec 4.73.
