    Last week's price spike because of Black Sea supply concerns and confusion over a cap on Russian grain exports seems a distant memory.The plentiful nearby physical wheat supply is again weighing on markets and whilst Russian exports continue to power ahead, the EU and US are left trailing in its wake.
