Market Commentary

Afternoon Comments 04/17

Strong wheat exports boosted those markets Thursday. The weekly USDA Export Sales report stated last week’s wheat figure above the forecast range, thereby suggesting recent price slippage has sparked renewed international interest. Talk of persistent dryness and freeze damage to Southern Plains wheat also seemed spur buying. May CBOT wheat futures settled 3.25 cents higher at $6.9125/bushel Thursday afternoon, while May KCBT wheat futures climbed 3.5 cents to $7.58, and May MWE futures surged 6.25 to $7.3275.
