Data and fear drive markets and that’s the case today. Grain futures are mixed overnight as traders prepare for Friday’s USDA reports, which aren’t expected to show major changes. Crude oil prices are higher after a survey showed a big drop in inventories last week, while the latest ethanol production numbers out this morning will show if plants ramped up output after a steep drop off. After setting new record highs this week the stock market is lower today as investors focus on sharply rising bond prices, signaling higher interest rates.
