THE UK market fell as Sterling pushed through DM2.98 and the French market improved slightly. The UK is seeing demand from Germany for odd spot feed wheat shipments, but generally the freight market is very quiet. Chicago fell once again as fears of frost damage diminished and on rumours of possible Chinese purchases from Canada.
