Dec 16 HRW lost 21 1/4 cents during the week despite a 6 cent gain on Friday. US wheat export commitments are 31% larger than last year at this time, feeding ideas that USDA could bump up its estimate on the 9th.

Sorghum use for ethanol was up 79% from September, but slightly below year ago. Analysts are also noting that corn export commitments have reached 53% of the current USDA full year forecast. They would typically be 51%, so there is room for an upward revision next Friday (WASDE report).
