Marketline Report for Tuesday, August 20th
McGATHEY ... "Wheat doesn't have as many negative points about it, but with corn and beans so much lower, it's bringing that down as well. So, they're following the grains all the way down. The futures are really working its way lower even though managed funds continue to hold and kind of add to some of the short positions. Certainly, in Minneapolis and in Kansas City wheat. So, they've got to watch the entire wheat complex as well, but there are some positives on the horizon. Just for wheat alone, but with corn and soybeans as low as they are, it may be difficult to show it and keep that market a little bit, you know, moving higher. But, right now, all of the markets are lower. Kind of quiet today, but we expect there's still going to be a lot of volatility ahead."
