Wheat Sentiment at the outset was
far more friendly to the market than
recently. An advance of 4 to 7 cents
was easily attained. Around midday
it became apparent that he vulner
able portion of the short interest had
covered. Renewed selling pressure
was followed by a sharp decline to
within a fraction of Saturday's cfos-.
ing prices. The news suddeuk- took
on a different color, particularly as to
the Canail an situation and the weak
ness in the spring wheat premiums
Iwhich were quoted 2c lower. Impor
tations of Canadian wheat were begin-
Ining to be forgotten when it was re
ported today that sizeable offering
had been made to this market and
that a cargo waa on the way. The In
crease of 2,325.0ia bushels waa larger
than expected comparing with a de
crease of a year ago. We are still of
the opinion that financial and business
conditions which are uncertain to say
the least will predominate and as the
advance of the past few riuv. h...
largely to the economical nottin
the market, which has been eradicated
A resumption of the downward course
of prices seems In sight.
