This is Bob Larson with the Market Line Report for Thursday, Feb 28th. Wheat futures show a bit of a rebound in Wednesday trading. From the floor of the CME in Chicago, here's Virginia McGathey.

McGATHEY ... "Wheat was a little bit higher. Futures did get somewhat of a rebound since the market has declined quite a bit, almost 10 or 11 percent in the last number of sessions, but it could be short-lived, this rebound, because the export business is still weaker and that's even with a 4-percent drop in the 2018 production that we looked at. Non-commercials are still short and there is some uncertainty driving the market and so it's kind of pushing it a little bit lower. But, U.S.-China resolution would definitely be welcome in the commodities market across the board."
