Happy Monday!

Well, a quieter start to the week today. Lionesses missed out on their well-played game yesterday. Ukraine is nearing a deal with insurers, with one Lloyd insurer ready to insure grains boats sailing down their amnesty corridor. Over 10 ships that have been stranded in Odessa since war started have left the port already. Will be interesting to see where this goes.

Managed money added on corn, soybean and wheat bearish bets in the CFTC with corn taking the largest swing.

Wheat markets pretty bearish today with lack of fresh inputs, both US and Matif was trading lower. Warmer temps move into the US. US weekly export inspections advanced 16% to 311,314t. Canada’s Saskatchewan harvest is 9% complete and rain received over the past week has been welcomed by producers. UK wheat market does appear a little lacklustre as harvest cracks on through the beneficial weather breaks. London wheat was trading around the £186/187 levels this afternoon with vols pretty light. Matif wheat was trading lower with Sept-23 sitting around the €229.50/t into the close.
