Naomi Blohm with Total Farm Marketing says yesterday's Consumer Price Index report showed a 0.4 % increase in inflation. She says this was more than the trade expected and initially drove prices down before they recovered at the end of the day. She says this surprise may lead the Federal Reserve to once again raise interest rates another 0.75% instead of 0.50% as traders had hoped. 

At this hour, the U.S. Dollar Index is up to 112.9. The S&P 500 is down 37 points. The Dow is down 135 points.
