All three were down on the week, despite strong export sales. US weekly wheat export sales were up 61% from the prior week for old-crop at 458,400 MT and came in at 106,000 for the 2015/16 crop. Together, the 564,400 MT total was up nearly 50% from the 377,200 MT reported the prior week. The generally bearish views on the part of managed money didn’t spare wheat.
