Over at Farm Futures: Wheat Outlook – Wheat tries to turn a corner — again. This article by Bryce Knorr begins: “The wheat market can point fingers at plenty of reasons why prices struggled over the past month, from seasonal trends to the negative mood in corn and soybeans. But charts and perhaps fundamentals too suggest hopes for a modest rebound. The slide into September was not unexpected. That’s what usually happens as growers get rid of wheat in front of the fall harvest, when lower prices of corn and soybeans typically weigh on sentiment too.”
