Just as we have seen in the Good Ol’ USA the minions are tired overtaxed and growing to zero tolerance of being bullied by a certain so-called elite in government. In November the people had spoken and now we are on a new path that will not accept bullying and globalism that certain factions force at any means at their disposal whether it is legal or illegal, moral or unmoral and it is a time people are coming to the realization that those members of society are the Deplorables. France votes and the markets will most likely be on edge putting fear in market participation with Free Markets for Free Men riding on the outcome.
On the Corn front the market is not buying into the weather that is delaying plantings. With record crops in South America and expected record crops this growing season in the U.S. regardless of acreage cuts. Either way you look at the picture rallies will be sold in the futures market. In the overnight electronic session the May Corn is currently trading at 357 ½ which is ¼ of a cent lower. The trading range has been 358 ¼ to 356 ¾.

On the Crude Oil front the market is still reeling from the technical washout on Wednesday after mostly friendly inventory data, light volume that had small participants the market got slammed after buyers seemed to be on the side.
