Good morning.


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.

Re: OptionEye....May15th

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.

Sounds like you need to go 'long' any tennis shoe manufacturers and swimtrunk distributors?
