Prices were solidly higher overnight, on follow-through buying from good gains Tuesday. The funds are loading up on the long side in grains. A pattern has developed in the grains: Solid buying on any dips in prices. As long as that patterns continues, bulls will have their way. When this pattern changes, and we see some good follow-through selling pressure after a pullback, that will be a warning signal that the bulls are losing power. Wheat will likely continue to be the leader. Look for more volatile trading conditions in the near term.
