Market Commentary

Afternoon Comments 09/19

Wheat prices fell once again. Thursday’s export news was quite disappointing for wheat bulls, since it confirmed the noncompetitive nature of current U.S. quotes on the global market. U.S. dollar values at 4.5-year highs are discouraged traders as well. December CBOT wheat dropped 14.0 cents to $4.745/bushel at Friday’s settlement, while December KC wheat tumbled 9.5 cents to $5.6025/bushel, and December MWE wheat dove 14.75 to $5.355.
