Wheat...Firming basis levels were evident across the west coast wheat
markets this week, most notably for hard red winter and soft white. Spot
basis on hard red winter bids jumped 15 to 20 cents higher, posted at 155
over KC March as exporters work to cover prior sales. White wheat basis
also strengthened through the week, which ties the marketing year high of
plus 110 that was also posted in early August. Japan booked 3.3 mb this
week, which included about 900,000 bushels of wheat from the U.S. market.
Weekly Sales..USDA reported improvement in U.S. wheat demand last week,
with overall totals impacted by a 5 mb reduction from unknown. Total sales
were a net 5.6 mb. Year-to-date sales are now setting at 724 mb; 9% below
a year ago at this time and 5% behind the five-year average pace. The top
seller was hard red winter with 2.8 mb. Hard red spring booked 2 mb and
soft white netted less than a million bushels.
