Market Commentary

Afternoon Comments 07/25


Bargain hunters reportedly boosted the wheat markets before the weekend. Wheat futures suffered a dearth of late-week news, which may be one reason they rose Friday. Active bargain hunting and short-covering apparently entered the markets, which made considerable sense when considered the size of the May-July breakdown and the huge short exposure of the trading funds. September CBOT wheat rallied 9.25 cents to $5.38/bushel at their Friday close, while September KC wheat surged 10.75 cents to $6.3125/bushel, and September MWE wheat moved up 8.0 cents to $6.2775.
