Market Commentary

Afternoon Comments 10/22

Fund short-covering may have supported wheat futures. The wheat markets were seemingly pulled upward by concurrent corn and soy gains this morning, which made the golden grains’ late firmness in the face of their counterparts’ losses that much more surprising. We have to suspect the various funds continue liquidating their huge short positions, thereby explaining the sustained strength. December CBOT wheat gained 3.0 cents to $5.2225/bushel in late Wednesday trading, while December KC wheat rose 3.0 cents to $6.0525/bushel, but December MWE wheat slid 0.25 to $5.6875.
