K.C. hard red winter wheat and MGEX spring wheat contracts also posted sharp gains.
The benchmark CBOT December soft red winter wheat contract rose through its five-day and 30-day moving averages before hitting resistance at its 20-day moving average.
The US Agriculture Department on Tuesday morning trimmed its outlook for 2020/21 US wheat ending stocks by 6 million bushels to 877 million. Analysts had been expecting 881 million.
