Reason

Why are grains and meats open today? What's so important about these markets to bypass the National Day of Mourning for President Bush? One explanation may be that we needed to be open to allow the powers that be to please the other powers to be to put out a bunch of wheat and corn for delivery and catch those still playing the long side to carry the stocks over the weekend and through the closing of the Lakes................................Or, it is in our national security interest to have oat and ethanol end users able to lay off risk 24/7/365................. Or, no reason is necessary even if the Banks and Post Office is closed.....................................Only the Shadow knows..........................

South American weather still appears to be conducive for crop development.....................looks like a lower and slower market ahead of us today yet, we may see traders with a habit play in our yard today as they've no other markets to trade.................
