This is Bob Larson with the Market Line Report for Monday, April 30th. Prices are up but questions remain on the grain market Friday. From the floor of the CME in Chicago, here's Virginia McGathey.

McGATHEY ... "Now, the wheat is also higher today and the bullish trend is remaining intact. I know that the weather troubles that we’re having in the southern plains are still there. As we start to harvest, we’re going to really see what the numbers are. Next Tuesday is going to tell the tale. The market is kind of surging and really going to end up on a positive note for this week for sure. And, I think that this weather is really helping a lot of the bulls, that U.S. Dollar Index not so much, really putting a lid on it. And, long-term, I know that the bears are still lurking in the wheat market so we have to watch that closely. But, any kind of poor numbers coming out of that winter wheat is going to send the market a lot higher."
