25 degrees in Kansas this morning. 23 degrees in Texas. Should support wheat even though we are currently down 3 to 5 cents.
Corn is up 2 and beans are mixed.
Can't turn on the TV without hearing about the Boston Bomb suspects being cornered. That news will dominate the day and some traders have said that the overnight trade was busy until this story started to dominate the talking heads. Could prove to be a headline watching day and not a lot of trade.
Gold back above $1400 at $1409. The 10 year is at 1.70% and the Euro is strengthening. The economic calendar is blank and that will lend itself to a slower trade.
Let's hope they get this last guy....

Maybe it is ok that the media is not on the fertilizer plant story until more info is known and they get the story straight. So far it has not been good for ag. I agree that this is just as horrific an accident.

An accidental explosion at a fertilizer plant in rural America has no weight... Media can't use that little story to scare the sense out avg Joe........into doomsday preppers no less....................................Besides, it's not about the people anyways...

Hey ECIN....how about I invite myself and buy for you both!
Appreciate your comments folks.
The trading rooms around the world have been fixated on the Boston thing mainly because there are suspects at large. There are nasty people to blame the bombings on and take our frustrations out on. The Texas accident is a national tragedy as well but no boogyman to blame it on yet. Looks like a horrible accident so far and without the suspects running around Waco it is a harder sell.
Either way, I totally agree that both stories get absolutely beaten to death.

Resting up again, since I might not get sleep for days if this thing breaks.
But, if one ever needed a fund raiser.... Just sell $100 raffle tickets for a lunch with Mizzou. Just hope old Steve didn't win. I dare say for all the bashing MT takes, there would be many willing to buy. Sure would not be a boring lunch.
