Wheat Futures Market News and Commentary


Wheat futures are trading 1 to 2 cents higher this morning. They sustained 4 to 6 1/4 cent losses in most CBT and MPLS contracts yesterday, with KC fractionally to 1 3/4 cents lower. USDA’s weekly Export Inspections report showed 418,460 MT shipped in the week that ended on 12/6. That was down 11.8% from last week but up 18% from this week in 2017. Total shipments YTD (404.17 mbu) are 16.24% lower than a year ago but have been gaining over the past several weeks. Analysts are expecting USDA to peg 18/19 world ending stocks at 266.5 MMT ahead of Tuesday’s monthly update, slightly lower than November. Delayed CFTC data showed spec traders in CBT wheat futures and options trimming their net short position as of last Tuesday by 10,206 contracts to -28,407 contracts. They also cut 7,227 contracts from their net short position in KC wheat to -2,445 contracts. --provided by Brugler Marketing & Management
