Marketline Report for Monday, August 5th
McGATHEY ... "Wheat was higher today and it rebounded off the news of the tariff threat, but most importantly, Australia has cut their production and this could be really major for the U.S. I think that it definitely should kick up the Kansas City wheat, but I think it will take the Chicago wheat futures along with it. If those numbers are correct, that bodes well for us to really kind of fill in the exports for what's going to be lost from Australia. Now, this is really new news so we don't know exactly how it's going to work, but just the idea it is giving the market a little bit of a lift."
