On Thursday, wheat futures slipped, while corn futures continue to climb. From the floor of the CME Group, here’s Virginia McGathey

McGathey: “Corn was firm today, it is really climbing and actually broke through a couple of resistance levels. Today again, certainly exports have been really good all long the way in spite of fact that we have a big crop looming from South America and we do have big stocks, the market still managed to have another rally here ahead of a three-day weekend so the market continues to look good. Planting is going to start next week, all bets are off for that because planting, getting it in the ground and weather will become an issue. So we will watch for that.”
