Wheat futures settled mixed, recovering from early losses in KC due to profit taking ahead of the weekend. Rains are moving across areas of Nebraska, Kansas and Oklahoma today through Sunday. US Export commitments total 98% of the full year forecast. They would typically be 101% by now. It will thus take a stronger than usual shipping pace to hit the recently lowered USDA figure of 880 million bushels for the year. The EU has now issued 28.2 MMT of export licenses for wheat, up 2.3 MMT from last year at this time. Their marketing year ends June 30. The French 2015 soft wheat crop is well behind last year in terms of maturity. Egypt is taking advantage of the price slide, scheduling an overnight purchasing tender for early June delivery.
