The remnants of Tropical Storm Alberto are still causing flooding in several areas along the Gulf Coast. The storm is expected to cause rainfall and potentially more flooding further inland.

Down double digits..wheat in bad shape,
Wheat has been yoyo for last month.

In open outcry, we saw who was buying/selling

Re: Floor Talk May 30
We can't find anymore information from open outcrys than we can becoming masters of technical analysis. The markets will continue to move with emotion the same as they always have. The difference now going forward will be developing the ability to interpret the sentiment with price, volume, and further technical analysis.
