Volume traded Friday was around 18,100 lots, preliminary Thomson Reuters data showed, down slightly from Thursday's tally of 18,504 lots.

"The dollar is very strong today and that is not helping the cause a bit," she said. Traders said the failure of key May to establish itself above the 93 and 94 cents area of resistance prompted investors ...

Wheat futures were firm, rebounding from two days of declines, in the wake of ...
