Wheat Climbs to Monthly Record on Concerns About Cold Weather

January 31, 2012 at 21:30 by Vladimir Vyun

Wheat rose today to a monthly high on concerns that cold weather in Europe will hurt output. Temperatures in Ukraine may fall below 15 degree Fahrenheit, threatening crops, especially those not covered with snow. At the same time, Russia is considering a tax on exports.

Additionally, wheat was rising with other commodities on speculation that Greece is making progress in debt-reduction discussions. The European leaders agreed about sanctions on countries with high budget deficit.

Wheat price climbed from $6.4475 to $6.6625 per bushel as of 21:24 GMT today on CBoT after reaching $6.6750 — the highest since January 3.
