Wheat futures jump up CHICAGO (AP) - Wheat futures advanced 1% cents a bushel early on the Chicago Board of Trade Monday, then fell back under general liquidation that touched every pit on the floor. Trade was mixed and active on the opening but then the pace slowed down to a typical mid-holiday session. Early buying of wheat apparently was a carryover from last Thursday's session when a wave of late buying sent prices higher by some 3 cents a bushel. A surge of export business over the long weekend again was generally the prime factor in the buying. At the top of the market, however, local professionals quickly took profits and prices turned around. Corn futures displayed some early strength but it, too, dissipated. Hedging was virtually non-existent on the opening but there was a fair, amount of commercial and commission house buying. When prices weakened, it was under the leadership of local selling and stop loss selling. ' Oats prices reflected the movements of corn in very light trade. Prices were irregular in the soybean complex and trade very slow. Oil and meal futures held some buying interest briefly on the opening but weakened under local selling. The weakness in the end-products tended to influence selling of soybeans. Iced broilers showed little movement in very light trade. •After about an hour, wheat was 14 cent a bushel lower to % higher, March 1.70%; corn was unchanged to % lower, March 1.56%; oats were unchanged to 14 lower, March 79% cents and soybeans were % lower to % higher, January 2.95%.
