AFB Rice Close: Prices Move Lower

Rice Comment

Rice prices were also lower. Carryover weakness from other markets was a factor today. While U.S. demand for rice remains good, large global supplies and increased export competition are limiting U.S. export opportunities. With news that the Thailand government is selling rice at a loss, look for U.S. exports to remain suppressed. Resistance for March is last week’s spike high of $15.74. Support begins at $15.36.
