Wheat Prices Drop and Latest WASDE Report is Out - and we have your SUNUP preview

Thu, 15 Dec 2011 15:55:37 CST

Wheat Prices Drop and Latest WASDE Report is Out - and we have your SUNUP preview The latest World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates Report has been released and wheat has dropped below $6.50 in Kansas City. Dr. Kim Anderson, Grain Marketing Specialist, takes a look at the change in prices and says that it is a significant change in the market.

Anderson explains that over the last six weeks, there has been significant support of the $6.50 price and looking ahead it is difficult to tell how far it can fall from that $6.50 level. Anderson adds that this happened during the holiday season and the trading and volume is light, which is another item to take into account.

As we look into 2012, Anderson predicts that we are going to continue to see weakness in prices, especially if we get those timely rains in Oklahoma, Texas and Kansas. Anderson says that there is a lot of wheat around the world and that is going to weigh heavy on the market.
