Markets Quiet After Volatile Monday

After a big rally on Monday the wheat market is holding on to most of its gains, with corn and soybeans also fairly firm in quiet overnight trading. Concerns about the health of the wheat crop in the U.S. and Former Soviet Union spurred buying yesterday that triggered more technical gains. Gold and crude oil are paring yesterday’s gains after both commodities broke sharply then reversed higher.
