   Wheat...The holiday-shortened trading week showed strengthening basis
in white wheat holding cash bids relatively steady, while hard red winter
bids reflected new contract lows in Kansas City futures.  Trade activity
remains light at current price levels, though west coast exporters show
an interest in nearby ownership of white wheat; bid structures are flat
into the next 60 days. 
   Shipments...Weekly export inspections showed a marked improvement for
U.S. wheat loadings last week, registering the best week of shipments for
the marketing year.  A total of 18.7 mb was loaded off all ports, which
puts year-to-date shipments at 360 mb and 18% behind a year ago. Hard red
spring was top shipper with 8 mb, followed by hard red winter with 5.9 mb
and soft white at 3.2 mb.  Top west coast destinations were Japan with 3.6
mb, Bangladesh and the Philippines with 2.1 mb each, and Indonesia taking
1.9 mb for the week.
