Market Commentary

Afternoon Comments 07/23

The wheat markets rebounded as well. Current wheat fundamentals seem less than supportive, especially with the corn market depressed. U.S. wheat was also shut out of the latest Egyptian tender, which didn’t help market psychology. Nevertheless, prices turned higher around midsession, with wheat traders apparently expecting soy strength to raise all boats in the crop sector. September CBOT wheat climbed 6.25 cent to $5.3075/bushel as Wednesday’s pit session ended, while September KC wheat moved up 2.25 cents to $6.235/bushel, and September MWE wheat gained 2.25 cents to $6.21.
