Early call on Chicago

"Corn futures opened 6 to 8 higher; soybeans 9 to 16 higher; wheat 15 to 20 higher. Solid gains were posted in overnight trade as weather and outside markets dominated trade. USDA reports Friday morning are not expected to alter that call, but they could. "

The USDA figures certainly could alter the markets perspective later on. Get back to the blog for details of what the figures have to say, and market reaction towards them as it happens soon after 13.30BT.
