Marketline Report for Thursday, August 29th
McGATHEY ... "Now, wheat also slipped a little bit. That Egypt did buy some French wheat, and that kind of took something away from us. That means that the U.S. supplies really have nowhere to go. I think that for the October shipment that went to France, really kind of gives us a little bit of a signal that European competition is going to be relatively fierce. And, of course, the news out of there is that their crops are doing very, very well. They are expecting pretty big yields. That, definitely, will keep wheat from really rallying much, definitely keeping them from following corn and beans which were a little bit more on the rise today. So, everything's going to be day to day, but we are definitely in a weather market right now."
