5/17/24: Wheat futures markets have followed the same trend day over day since Mondays aggressive move higher.  Overnights and early morning trade pushes nearby highs, but not long into trading hours everything turns red.  Same thing happening today.  Markets up 7-10 cents in the overnights currently all down roughly a nickel.  Russian weather and US planting progress continue to be the main drivers and will be through the first couple weeks of June.  Russia has been receiving moderate rains this week with cooler than normal temps.  Current forecasts show little rain moving forward and temps rising though.  Historically Russian crops lose major production in June if they lose.  So, expect volatility to continue as we trade Russian weather events.  US forecasts show a potential break in rain tail end of next week with a window appearing for better planting progress.  Unlikely much progress was made over the past 7 days.  We will see updated reports Monday afternoon.  The Wheat Quality Council ran its tour of Kansas winter wheat this week.  Estimated yield of 46.5 which puts production at 290 million bu for Kansas this year.  Bigger than USDA’s estimated number on last Fridays report (268 million bu).  That would be the highest production since 2021 and points to a healthy crop based off what they saw.  Combine that with bigger estimates in Texas Oklahoma and Colorado and the US will have plenty of winter wheat this year.  Hopefully Russian production continues to go backwards, and we can get more demand at our shores, so we have somewhere to go with it.
