Wheat futures closed lower but off their session lows as Chicago wheat broke through the $5.00 mark before recovering somewhat near the close. Corn and soybeans also closed lower. The trend in January continued with the U.S. Dollar higher and the grain markets lower. Favorable weather in the Southern Plains and South America also pressured the grains. The Stock Market was down. Crude oil bucked its trend closing up $3.50/barrel on a sharply lower U.S. rig count. Locally the 10 day forecast is calling for above normal temperatures all through next week. Ag Expo will be in Spokane next Tuesday through Thursday. Hope to see you there.
