Grain  05/22/15 11:58:52 AM

Chicago futures are trading down heading into the holiday weekend with the upward movement of the US dollar and favorable weather conditions in mid-west growing areas acting as key contributers to the downward pressure. Fun Fact: Dolphins sleep with one eye open.        Futures markets will be closed Friday afternoon & will not  trade again until Monday evening as this is a long weekend. MCP will be closed Monday May 25th returning Tuesday  May 26th, have a great weekend and be safe!!

A strong rebound in the dollar has commodities markets on the run with Chicago wheat leading the charge. Wheat is off 14-18 cents from yesterdays close, as Russia lifted the export tax and rumors of around 1.2 million tons of wheat may now hit the market. Weather concerns have eased a bit but can spark up a buying frenzy at any moment.   Fun fact: It is not possible to tickle yourself
