Market Commentary
Wheat continues to spiral downwards, as the market is oversold but nobody wants to stick there neck out on a long position yet. Currently the march is trading at the $5 price level with it testing the support level there. If it breaks below the next key technical resistance line is $4.80. Cash markets grind lower as exports really aren’t in the buying mood, export sales were strong this week for white wheat, and if the trend continues exporters will have to prop up the cash price.  Fun Fact of the Day: The longest recorded flight of a chicken is 13 seconds

Arlington Elevator Update: Currently the Arlington barge facility is not staffed full time, please call Jeff Holliday for delivery assistance.

Market News: 
Wheat tries to find a leg to stand on this morning as it trades a couple of cents up. Export sales this morning for old crop came in at 10.5 million bushels slightly under the 11.4 million bushels need for the current marketing year. White wheat came in at 2.4 million bushels with the top buyers being Japan, Thailand and Unknown. Egypt tenders 1 cargo with France being the likely port of call. In outside markets the Dollar continues to gain in strength, and crude oil is mixed after a late session speculative run up. WTI’s once thought to be floor of $50 a barrel may turn in to a key resistance level as fundamentals are still feeding the bears.
