Wheat futures finished the Friday session mixed, but the weekly chart shows all losses. Most Friday strength was in the front months. Prices were 2 down to 3 cents up in CHI (-13 cents on the week), steady to 2 cents higher in KC (-15 cents), and 4 cents lower to a penny higher in MPLS (-22 cents). The CFTC report released at 2:30 CDT shows CHI managed money accounts decreased their net long position by 15,506 contracts to 5,099 contracts net long. KC wheat contracts decreased their net long position by 6,829 contracts, to a net short position of 513 contracts. USDA states that 126,900 MT of wheat was sold to unknown destinations this morning, 67,650 MT of which was HRW. So far this year, South Korea, the Philippines, and Thailand have purchased nearly 3 MMT of feed wheat from the Black Sea region for July-December delivery, jumping on prices cheaper than US offers.
