Market Commentary

Afternoon Comments 07/28

The wheat markets remained generally weak. Wheat futures have been blessed with little news lately, but today’s Export Inspections report likely disappointed bulls. The published figure at 396,000 tonnes fell slightly below the forecast range. Futures actually bounced from overnight lows, but also failed at moving average resistance Sunday night. September CBOT wheat settled down 3.25 cents at $5.3475/bushel Monday afternoon, while September KC wheat slumped 5.75 cents to $6.255/bushel, and September MWE wheat dropped 6.5 cents to $6.2125.
