Market Commentary

Afternoon Comments 09/29

Wheat futures turned upward as well. Grain industry participants were almost surely squaring positions in the wheat markets today, since Tuesday’s Small Grains Summary and Grain Stocks reports could have major implications for the outlook. News of a sizeable Taiwanese tender for U.S. wheat probably encouraged buying. December CBOT wheat closed up 7.0 cents to $4.8125/bushel Monday afternoon, while December KC wheat rose 2.75 cents to $5.665/bushel, and December MWE wheat added 6.0 to $5.3925.
