Volume and action yesterday was very light. I can't remember a day when we traded so little in the options area that wasn't a holiday. Very quiet but May tends to be that way.
Corn down 2. Beans down 4 and wheat down 6ish.
The 10 year is making a run at 2.00% telling us that things may be getting better. I still have some doubts/worries but all of us on the floor in Chicago would love to have things better sooner rather than later. The perverse thing is that a slight interest rate rise might actually be good for the economy.
Stocks are just a little lower today and stories doing the rounds that gold is dead. I think that is a little premature but it's down again today by $14 trading around $1411.
91 degrees in parts here yesterday. Time to get into shape. My shorts shrunk in the closet over the winter. Oh well.

My closet has been shrinking my clothes too.
Maybe it is the wash and dryer.
Has been a problem ever since I got rid of the pigs.
Maybe it is the aroma that kept them from shrinking before.
Thanks for your posts.
I read but seldom think to say thanks.
