Market Report 9-4-17

Weekly Market Highlights

  • Wheat futures are higher this week after posting more contract lows and transitioning to trading the December futures market; basis premium prices for some grades are lower.
  • Cash wheat, the combination of futures and basis, is very close to what we reported a week ago.
  • Canada’s wheat crop is projected to be about 14% smaller this year compared with last. Combined with the smaller U.S. crop, this news could have been more supportive than it is given large crops in other nations.
  • Large corn and soybean crops are expected. This could snarl logistics that are already facing the aftermath of Texas hurricane even further, which in turn could support the wheat basis.
  • It appears the markets have finally found some support after seven weeks of fairly steady falling prices.
