Market Commentary

Afternoon Comments 07/29


The wheat markets came under pressure as well. Improved weather forecasts seemed to play a lesser role in Tuesday’s wheat decline; traders reportedly cited huge global supplies and strong competition from other exporters for the drop. The morning breakdown also had a big technical component. September CBOT wheat plunged 14.75 cents to $5.20/bushel at their Tuesday settlement, while September KC wheat dove 14.0 cents to $6.115/bushel, and September MWE wheat slumped 10.75 cents to $6.105.
