Grain prices are mixed this morning in quiet overnight trade. Wheat is rebounding from Friday’s bearish reversals, supported by news Russian may again restrict exports due to food inflation caused by its battered currency, which has lost more than 50% of its value thanks in part to weak crude oil prices. Corn is steady, as traders eye potential impact from a heat wave in Argentina, where temperatures topped 100 degreess over the weekend.

Knorr shares market insights from overnight trade and you can listen using the audio tool on this page (just scroll down).
