Market Commentary

Afternoon Comments 09/23

Wheat markets also moved mostly lower. The crop condition report yielded little surprising news, which seemingly left wheat futures open to the bearish influence of the corn market. Ultimately, the glutted global situation is apparently exerting persistent pressure upon relatively high domestic wheat prices. The reason for the modest KC advance was unclear. December CBOT wheat closed down 0.75 cent to $4.76/bushel Tuesday, while December KC wheat rose 1.75 cents to $5.62/bushel, and December MWE wheat lost 2.25 to $5.345.
