The wheat markets were little changed Wednesday morning. The Russia-Ukraine situation is probably supporting wheat futures, but prices have seemingly stalled. The fact that weather conditions aren’t looking as bad as might have been the case may be robbing the market of bullish momentum after Tuesday’s big move. May CBOT wheat futures inched 0.25 cent lower to $7.015/bushel in late Wednesday morning action, while May KCBT wheat futures stabilized at $7.655, as did May MWE futures at $7.385.
