Summary Box: Orange juice rises on storm worries

OJ PRICES: The price of orange juice futures rose 3.3 percent as investors weighed the possibility that hurricanes could create supply issues. The latest government forecast predicts this year's crop will be 8.82 million tons.

PRECIOUS MIX: Gold fell and silver rose as some investors sold their holdings for a profit. The prices of both metals are higher than at the start of the year, despite recent volatility.

DOLLAR MOVE: Many commodities were mixed because of the movements in the dollar. Commodities are priced in dollars, so a stronger dollar makes them more expensive for buyers using other currencies.
