due to the lack of progress in talks between the US and China, the fall of the markets of soybeans and corn significantly pressure on wheat prices. An additional factor of pressure was the fall in stock indices, caused by a decrease in fed rate hike under pressure from the U.S. President, who wants to enhance the country's economy after the slowdown in the war with China.
