CBOT wheat futures strengthened by 1.2% last week


During the reporting week (January 12-19) CBOT wheat prices strengthened by 1.15%, reports UkrAgroConsult.

The US and French wheat prices also increased in spot market. The Black Sea market (Russia, Ukraine and Romania) remained low active.

In Chicago futures were supported by technical factors and weekly 31% increase in the US wheat export inspections. Besides, a series of international tenders held last week also had a positive impact on prices. The further growth of CBOT prices was limited by the weather factor - favorable rains in the US winter wheat producing regions.
