Market Comments

Markets closed lower today giving back some of yesterday’s gains on news of the Russian invasion of Ukraine. The instability of the political climate in the Black Sea Region has been in the forefront of news for the week with the markets keying in on the Russian aggression. Traders still watching the weather in the upper Midwest’s key spring wheat growing areas – worried about quality concerns. For the week, grain markets closed up 8 ½ in Chicago, up 8 ¾ in Kansas City, and down ¼ in Minneapolis.
