This week, the global wheat market experienced notable developments. China’s cancellation of 504,000 Tonnes of US wheat and the postponement of Australian wheat shipments could be attributed to a market slowdown. The absence of trades in Australian wheat, due to competitive pricing from other sources, has led to a subdued market atmosphere in the SEA region. Price quotations for forward shipments indicate APW1 at U$270/mt and APH at U$335/mt for key CNF SEA ports in containers.

Since China return from vacation, we have observed a robust demand for Australian red sorghum in China.
