Wheat prices led the grain markets today, with double-digit gains supported by improved export enthusiasm. Most contracts finished the day 10-14 cents higher.
"Wheat futures were also supported by news that Egypt's supply minister looks for the country to use its special $100 million credit line from the U.S. to make purchases of U.S. wheat for blending near-term," reports Pro Farmer's Julianne Johnston.
Strong pressure on the dollar index today supported prices across the grain sector.
Soybeans closed today 9 cents higher, while corn prices increased by just a penny.
