HOUSTON (ICIS news)--Corn futures plummeted on the Chicago Board of Trade (CBOT) on Monday, as all traded contracts fell 30 cents – the exchange’s maximum daily limit – in the midst of a burgeoning international economic crisis.
On a day where the Dow Jones Industrial Average was down more than 700 points and crude oil futures had fallen more than $10/bbl, corn for December delivery lost 30 cents to reach $5.13/bushel.
Corn prices have been particularly volatile in the past few months and have followed crude oil throughout the summer and into autumn.
