March Wheat finished up 2 at 759 1/2, 4 1/2 off the high and 13 up from the low. May Wheat closed up 3 at 767 1/4. This was 13 up from the low and 4 1/4 off the high.
KC and Chicago wheat traded lower early in the session but found some buying support late in the day on rumors a fair amount export business may have been done with non-traditional customers. Early pressure was linked to technical sell pressure on the heels of a sharply higher US Dollar. Export sales will be released tomorrow so the trade is also looking ahead to possible signs that export demand is showing signs of improvement. Syria issued a 100,000 soft wheat tender overnight and the Jordan and Iraq tenders are still pending.
