December oats posted a modest loss on Friday, while gaining 6 1/4 cents over the week, its highest close yet and near contract highs. The $3 level remains a hurdle for the contract. The second study shows the Sept/Dec spread at a weak carry of one cent (brown line) and a bullish Dec/March inverse of one cent. Ahead of the latest CFTC data, the histogram on the lower study shows noncommercial traders holding close to the highest level seen since November 2014. (DTN graphic by Nick Scalise)
