Just like opening a box of Cracker Jack, there is a surprise in each USDA report. Speculation about where the surprise will be is the game that traders are playing this morning as markets sit quietly and wait for the news. Farmers are back in the field harvesting the crop with little interest in selling either corn or soybeans at the current time.
