Marketline Report for Monday, March 25th
McGATHEY ... "Wheat was also higher. Flooding seems to be hampering some of the shipping there. We know that they also reached their objective for the forecast, for the USDA forecast, so we're just having trouble moving it around because of the flooding and the funds are still short so the scramble hasn't been on yet to do any short-covering to move this up higher, but right now we're kind of stuck in this channel, but we're going to see that this bomb-cyclone that did go off here in the central plains of the U.S. could be affecting our markets until, let's say, May and if we're having trouble getting any grain in the ground until May, you can see that there's going to be quite a bit of volatility ahead."
