Market Commentary

Afternoon Comments 08/20

The wheat markets turned decidedly lower Wednesday. Although recent news has seemed somewhat supportive of wheat market prospects, futures proved unable to sustain their early-week rebound. Indeed, the fact that they seemed to fail at pivotal technical resistance associated with 40-day moving averages today may have set the stage for larger declines. September CBOT wheat tumbled 6.5 cents to $5.395/bushel at its Wednesday settlement, while September KC wheat dropped 5.75 cents to $6.1875/bushel, and September MWE wheat slumped 6.5 to $6.1025.
