Wheat Extending Bull Run

The wheat complex is continuing to lead the grains bull charge this week. Kansas City futures were up 10 ¾ to 16 ¾ cents on the session. Chicago contracts were up 9 ½ to 12 cents at the close. Spring wheat futures were 9 ¼ to 13 ¼ cents higher on the MPLS exchange.

Portions of the HRW wheat country from western Kansas down to the Texas panhandle are expected to miss out on the widespread rain event over the next week, with minimal amounts expected. The 6-10 day forecast also calls for above normal temperatures as we get into May.

Thursday morning’s weekly Export Sales report is expected to show anywhere from net reductions of 100,000 MT to net sales of 100,000 MT for old crop. New crop sales in the week of 4/18 are seen at 100,000 to 400,000 MT.
