Wheat held firm, reversing its 1 percent tumble on Thursday, with bargain buying and commercial demand at lower prices aiding the advance.   "There was consumptive buying, end-user buying, at the lower price levels and some technical buying," said Jerrod Kitt, analyst for the Linn Group.   Positioning occurred ahead of the expiration of November options on Friday.

London copper firms on Fed after 4 days of falls  SHANGHAI: London copper rose on Thursday, snapping four sessions of losses, on encouraging data from the United States and China, and after the US Federal Reserve announced its commitment to economic stimulus measures.   Three-month copper on the London Metal Exchange had climbed 0.7 percent to $7,874 per tonne by 0710 GMT, after dropping nearly 5 percent over the previous four sessions.   "The dollar will stay under pressure (as the Fed stimulus continues), which is supportive of commodities ...

Indian soybeans hit 1-month high on meal exports  MUMBAI: Indian soybean futures surged more than 3 percent on Thursday to hit the highest in a month on gains in overseas markets and as local oil millers were aggressively buying in spot markets due to good export demand for soymeal.   Soyoil got support from festival season demand, while rapeseed edged higher on depleting stocks.   Malaysian palm oil futures were down 1.01 percent at 2,552 ringgit per tonne at 0728 GMT, while US soybeans fell 0.35 percent ...
