Markets are quiet as the sun rises in Chicago, but don’t look for that calm to continue on what could be a very volatile day. USDA releases its first monthly production, supply and demand estimates for 2019 crops at 11 a.m. CST, while negotiators from the U.S. and China continue trade talks in Washington. The U.S. raised tariffs on another $200 billion in imports from China at midnight, with more threatened if a deal isn’t done.
