(In The Standard).
Wheat opened steady and unchanged, and developed a buoyant tone on firm cables, a bullish “Price Current Report,” covering of shorts, and liberal export shipments. The market later declined on realising, sympathy in corn, and a slack export demand, and closed easy at ½ c. to ¾ c. fall. Spot easy.—The Standard.
Wheat, for the anguish of the starving:—nay,
The market opens steadily,—but lean
And hark how at its verge cables sigh in
Determined. Ha! then buoyantly away;
For shorts are covered at the brink of day,
And export shipments tug upon the string
That sobs, while operators rise to sing
The Price Report is bullish! Do not stray:
On realising, prices downward creep;
There’s sympathy in corn—all corn is grass,
And cool again the export side. Let be:—
Say nothing unto bulls for fear they weep
One to three-eighths cent. fall.—Close easy was;
Spot easy. (So is immortality).
