McGathey “Fundamentally speaking, the Brazil harvest is marching on and it’s still has a huge crop coming and that kind of looms large over all the grain markets right now. We had a little bit of easing in the US dollar index that also helped kind of underpin some of the markets, that was very helpful. Wheat now did not get too much a boost today, but the sub-freezing temperatures are still a concern to everyone that’s watching to see if there’s going to be some damage.”
