Marketline Report for Monday, August 26th
McGATHEY ... "Wheat was kind of mixed. Now, they have like export sales that are up. The Canada estimates are also higher so you have kind of competing news issues that are pushing the market around. So, wheat is the only grain that really is holding itself up. I mean, it looks like that the sales numbers are coming up and that's offering some big support underneath. Although, it still looks like that there's a possibility the market could move a little bit lower. We're going to watch that closely. The open fighting with the tariff wars has really amped up to an area that we haven't quite seen. So, next week promises to be a lot more volatile. Anything can happen over this weekend."
