September wheat up 5 3/4 cents late in the overnight session. Outside market forces are mixed to somewhat negative with a higher US dollar. Continued talk of increasing demand due to higher priced corn plus uncertainty for yield for the spring wheat crop has helped support a solid recovery from last week's lows. Traders see Russia as the dominate exporter on the world market in the short-term but higher prices in recent tenders suggests that Russian pricing may be near a significant low as well. Russia exported 2 million tonnes of grain in July since the export ban was lifted which included 1.8 million tonnes of wheat. September wheat closed moderately higher on the session yesterday and pushed to a new 6-session peak. The market closed at the highest level since July 14th despite a surge up in the US dollar and weakness in metal and energy markets. Traders thought that the crop tour in North Dakota may show a smaller than expected spring wheat crop and participants are seeing plenty of yield issues with the late planted crop. In addition, too much rain for the EU harvest has some traders concerned with quality issues but the wet weather issues seem to be diminishing. EU grain officials are expected to raise European Union wheat production for the 2011/12 season to 137.03 million due to better weather over the past month. A strong rally in the US dollar kept wheat prices on the defensive early in the session yesterday but fund short-covering emerged to support. Aggressive export sales of by Russia this week have dampened expectations of foreign demand of US wheat. Expectations that Asian buyers would be coming into the market for their autumn supplies helped wheat to recover. Syria bought 127,000 tonnes of soft milling wheat and European traders thought the wheat will come from the Black Sea region. Jordon and Iraq have tenders soon. Ideas that wheat feeding will see a boost in the next few months due to high-priced corn, poor pasture and range conditions and a poor sorghum crop has helped to provide underlying support.
