Wheat futures saw gains in most contracts on Thursday, with CBT leading the way up 9 to 12 3/4. KC was mostly 6 to 7 1/4 cents higher and MPLS up 4-5 cents.

World ending stocks were shown at 273.5 MMT for old crop, while new crop was down 5.28 to 260.88 MMT. A reduction to European countries helped, as Russia is now at 67 MMT and the EU down 5.4 to 145 MMT. Strategie Grains cut their EU production estimate 7.5 MMT to 132.4 MMT. All wheat export sales for 18/19 in the week that ended July 5 were just 136,408 MT, short of analysts’ expectations.
