Marketline Report for Thursday, September 5th
McGATHEY ... "Wheat did rebound in a pretty big way. Bargain buying did spark some rally. We know it was severely oversold and we brought in a lot of technical traders that kind of gave it a little bit of a boost. But, be careful as well because the drought in Australia could give the market real strength here on the upside. Overall, we are in a long-term down-trend so maybe this is just a little bit of a recovery before we continue down. Normally, we're in harvest time. It's very depressed. It's difficult for the market to really rally significantly, but today the market looked very, very good. Now, all eyes are going to be on the WASDE report coming next week, Thursday, 11-o'clock Chicago time, and I think as we lead up to that we're going to see volatility start to increase in all the grains across the board."
