Market Commentary

Afternoon Comments 10/17


The wheat markets followed corn and beans lower. The lack of harvest pressure may have enabled the wheat markets to hold up relatively well Friday morning, but bulls couldn’t sustain midsession gains. Bullish traders were reportedly taking profits ahead of the weekend. December CBOT wheat slipped 1.0 cent to $5.16/bushel as Friday’s trading ended, while December KC wheat slumped 3.25 cents to $6.0175/bushel, and December MWE wheat dropped 6.0 to $5.705.
