CBOT wheat futures growth was triggered by technical factors

08.02.2017

Over the reporting week (January 26 - February 02) CBOT wheat prices strengthened again (+1.73% over the week; +9.42% over the month), reports UkrAgroConsult.

CBOT futures growth was triggered mainly by technical factors and data on weekly US wheat exports (January 19-26). Over the period under review export shipments were 40% higher than during the previous week. Besides, lack of rains in some producing regions of the Midwest and High Plains also raised concerns of market operators.
