CBOT wheat prices dropped by 8% pressured by USDA report


During the period under review (November 25 - December 01) CBOT wheat prices dropped by 7.47%, reports UkrAgroConsult.

Over the week US wheat prices (SRW) lost nearly USD 10/MT in the spot market (December delivery), while French wheat prices lowered on average by USD 8/MT. Black Sea wheat prices remained unchanged.

A number of factors, in particular publication of USDA report on major agricultural crops in the USA until 2021, pressured CBOT futures. In spite of wheat acreage reduction in the 2017/18 season to a record low, its ending stocks will remain quite high.
