Grain Futures Bounce Back From Losses

Grain Futures Bounce Back From Losses

Light buying kicks in overnight on mostly friendly USDA data. (Audio)

Markets are higher across the board this morning, rebounding from Tuesday’s disappointing session. Wheat is up the most, if only because it lost the most in the wake of bearish supply and demand data from USDA. Traders are watching for results from the latest Egyptian tender, which looks ready to buy Russian wheat. Corn and soybeans got better news from USDA, which cut ending stocks for both crops on better demand. But a trade dispute with China could throw a monkey wrench into those ideas.

Senior Editor Bryce Knorr offers his insight into overnight trade, listen using the audio tool on this page.
