    hi,

    looks like soybeans fell about 50 points in the last one minute of electronic trading. can someone else confirm this. any reason attributed to this drop?

    i had a limit buy at 1204.75 and was watching wheat very closely. suddenly the alarm goes off. i see that the soybeans order has been executed. came as a complete shock because i had been keeping an eye on it through out the session!!! now, have a 800$ loss! first time ever such a thing has happened to me.

    Ouch! Happened to me once... thats' why I dont like resting orders in the market..... even more so close before the market closes before a holiday....I got stopped out at 1115.5, ZS X8. Was in from 12/18 at 1062 even, but still... paper profits were about 3400 in the morning, and I placed a tighter stop, for better or for worse... is back to 1020 now.
     
  8. I am new to trading the grains. What is the difference in the last trade on the 5 minute chart being 1165 and the settlement price of 1207?

    Thanks

    I am not a bean punter, but I know the "settlement price" is usually the pit close in other contracts, vs. GLOBEX close.
