5/28/24: Same story, new day, Over the weekend Dryness in Russia (which has kept wheat futures firm all last week) continues... IKAR dropped Russian wheat production estimate to 81.5 MMT (down from 83.5 MMT mid last week). While the US markets were Closed Sunday Night into Monday day, MATIF rallied about 8 Euros or 20-22c and that is where our rally started overnight. Current Day session has given half of those gains back as we need to keep feeding the bull to keep the market running.

Couple big points to note here:


1.) IF the Russian Wheat crop Stabilizes at +80 MMT, we have likely priced the export balance table changes into the current price level and the problem of lighter production won't be felt for another 4 to 6 months, so we could see harvest pressure lean on these strong values as American growers turn grain into cash off the combine.

2.) IF Small crops get smaller and the final Russian number is closer to 75 MMT, there is likely a second price rally to be had and outside Fund Money more likley decides to flip from short positions to neutral or long and we could see an extended rally above fundamental prices that the new balance table would indicate. This would be a big win for American Growers with higher prices and strong yields (excluding those in SW Kansas, sorry). 


Final Point: We are in a full blown weather market with big swings---> This morning private vs public forecasting agents use different weather models...  each model is predicting different results for the 6-10 day forecasts so I would advise getting us sell orders if you want fills at levels above current values.
