Spec Trade Kansas VS Minni Wheat

Friday, July 29, 2022 at 2:30:42 p.m. UTC

Featured Commodity: Wheat Spread between Kansas and Minni

Reasons: I think that the spring wheat crop will be average to slightly better. I think that the winter wheat crop is below average. All the crop reports and other research seems to indicate this. I think that market won’t wake up to this until October.

Technical aspects: In the fall we should see the spread between the two narrow in and possibly turn positive as in Kansas is worth more than mini.
