  1. According to J.P. Morgan analysts, “investor appetite is returning to agri[cultural] commodity markets [both] as a reflationary hedge and to obtain exposure to stronger GDP.”  Accordingly, one can expect interest in wheat futures contracts to benefit from this macro investment view.  Both hedge funds and asset managers have the choice of two futures contracts at the CME Group for expressing a reflationary perspective in the wheat markets:  either via the Chicago soft red winter wheat (W) contract or the Kansas City hard red winter wheat (KW) contract.  Regarding the latter contract, the CME Group acquired this contract in late 2012 when it purchased the Kansas City Board of Trade.  As shown in Table 1, both wheat futures contracts have a combined $17.6 billion in open interest exposure (Panel A) and are also represented in the main commodity indices with an estimated $5.4 billion in total exposure (Panel B.)
