Overnight more of the same as far as volatility goes. Don't get lulled to sleep....this isn't over.
The corn market is steady to a bit easier, beans down 1 and wheat down 3.
The dollar is above that 90 level this morning and stands at 90.56 up .31.
The stock market is pointing higher this morning - so far - with the S&P future up 3.50 points and the Dow future up 36.
The 10 year yield is higher at 2.83% - so stocks being higher is a strong-ish sign this morning.
The crude oil market is lower being pressured by the strengthening dollar and trades at $61.63 down .16 cents. Gold continues to confound as it makes a move to $1300 and stands at $1310.35 down $8.17. Again, don't let this lull you to sleep.
