Wheat futures are mostly 5 to 11 cents in the green this morning. They saw another round of 6 to 10 3/4 cents losses on Wednesday, with most nearby MPLS and KC contracts closing within a penny of their lows. Nearby KC and CBT posted contract lows. Ahead of this week’s USDA Ag Outlook forum, analysts see USDA’s 2019 all wheat acreage forecast at 47.196 million acres, down 604,000 acres from last year. Japan’s weekly MOA tender is seeking a total of 92,830 MT of wheat from US and Canada, with 56,055 MT sought from the US. Egypt’s GASC purchased a total of 360,000 MT of wheat on Wednesday, with 180,000 MT French, and 60,000 each from Russia, Ukraine, and Romania.
