Metals fall, oil gains capped as China cuts growth  NEW YORK: Most commodities fell on Monday, with copper and silver dropping steeply after top buyer China cut its economic growth target, a move that also limited gains for oil on possible disruptions to supplies from Iran. "With China reducing the expected growth rate, the concern is there is the possibility of a bigger downside," said Kate Warne, investment strategist at Edward Jones in St. Louis. Questions about European growth, and therefore demand for raw materials, intensified after a gauge of activity at manufacturing and service companies slipped in February. In the United States, data showing the services sector expanded in February at its fastest pace in a year failed to interrupt commodity market declines, especially after a report indicated new orders for factory goods dropped in January. The 19-commodity Thomson Reuters-Jefferies CRB index settled about a half percent lower at 319.45. Though most components fell, gains in oil limited the index's decline. Supply ...

NY juice finishes higher despite late profit taking  NEW YORK: Orange juice futures extended gains into the fifth straight day on Monday, supported by ongoing concerns about juice imports from the world's top producer. Though gains were pared as investors cashed in on the more than 10 percent rise in February as the threat of frost in Florida's groves diminished, analysts said. "Given the current price levels and where we are in the calendar there's not a lot of frost risk in this market," said ...
Indian imposes ban on cotton exports, prices surge  NEW YORK: Cotton futures, which only last year hit a historic peak above $2 a lb, rallied to close limit up on Monday, spurred by India's surprise ban on exports of its cotton. That stoked speculative fervor that Chinese mills may have to turn to thinning US cotton supplies, evoking memories of the rally which saw cotton prices treble in August 2010 and eventually climax at $2.27 in March 2011. The benchmark May cotton contract ...
Gold drops on China, eyes key technical support  NEW YORK/LONDON: Gold fell on Monday, dropping with equity markets after China cut its economic growth targets, and the precious metal could pull back further if it fails to hold key support after last week's sharp sell-off. Bullion fell 1 percent after China, viewed by many as the engine of the global economy, cut its 2012 growth target to an eight-year low. A disappointing survey of euro zone private-sector activity also weighed on sentiment. Gold recovered somewhat ...
Corn hits 4-month high, soy down in choppy trade  WINNIPEG: Corn prices rose on Monday due to technical buying and tight supplies while soy and wheat slipped in choppy trading ahead of a US government crop report later in the week. Weaker equities, due to China indicating slower growth ahead, weighed on all three crops, while a slightly lower US dollar underpinned the grains. Chicago Board of Trade May corn gained 0.9 percent, or 5-3/4 cents, at $6.60-3/4 a bushel. The nearby March contract , in ...
