Markets Closed For Labor Day, Braces For Hurricane Dorian

Markets are closed today for Labor Day.  However, everyone is watching Hurricane Dorian as creeps at 1mph toward Florida and Eastern US.  The recent tariffs escalation by the US and China are expected to hit farmers hard.  Dorian may have additional impact on farmers and oil, but it is way to early to tell.

We are watching Crude Oil (WTI) for a possible drop.  If Dorian goes West, the supply could be interrupted and we could see increases.
