Jack Scoville, PRICE Futures Group vice-president, says the market is seeing a little short-covering. "It just appears to be some short covering, before the numbers tomorrow.  Plus, no real damage reports from all the rain yesterday.  Plus, the forecasts backing off on the freeze.  Been a quiet day, prices are up but they were hit pretty hard yesterday.  I am not sure in the end it means anything, just getting some shorts covered just in case."
