Marketline Report for Thursday, April 12th.
McGATHEY ... "Wheat today, it's just in a consolidation phase even though it's kind of the lower part of the channel. It just seems that the higher ending stock numbers really capped the rally because the market was looking strong for a while. Now, there is still weather issues in the southern plains of the U.S. and so at some point the rally will catch fire again and get the bulls back rolling, but for the time being it's kind of settling down. So, the USDA supply and demand report really were adding stock numbers domestically and globally and, it seems to me, that possibly we're just in an adjustment period right now, but over the next couple of weeks I still expect there's going to be other news that will give the shot in the arm that we're kind of looking for."
