A source on the floor sent us this photograph of a fight that broke out in the corn pits of the Chicago Board Of Trade earlier this week.

Apparently it was a fight over an order. One trader thought that the other trader stole one of the others’ orders.

The brawl has the potential to cause a $10,000 fine for both traders.
