CBOT brokers reported that funds bought 5,500 contracts of Corn and 2,800 contracts of Wheat ,while selling 4,300 contracts of Soybean.

Short-covering and a general lack of Bearish input pushed up Corn futures. Agriculture analysts said managed funds established a new record Short position as of Wednesday morning.

CBOT Wheat futures had posted losses for 3 sessions running after the USDA estimated Y 2018 winter Wheat plantings at 32.608-M acres, above analysts’ expectations.

Bargain-buying on Wednesday led to the rally of CBOT Wheat prices.

The Soybean were almost flat following 2 days of sharp rise.
