PRE-6 a.m. GLOBEX PRICES: July corn is up 10 3/4 cents per bushel, July
soybeans are up 17 1/2 cents, and September KC wheat is up 14 1/2 cents.
CME GLOBEX RECAP: Global equity markets are stronger overnight with U.S.
futures also poised for a higher open later Tuesday morning. Chinese markets
were especially strong, buoyed by ideas the government was planning to ease
Covid-19 restrictions, some of which have been in place for months. Energy
markets have staged a nice recovery this week with spot crude oil futures
holding the 100-day moving average last week and climbing above its 50-day
moving average this week. The U.S. Dollar Index is slightly weaker overnight
but still mainly in a consolidation phase. Metals are higher overnight with
copper leading gains, up 1.54%. Grain markets are all stronger overnight with
gains led by Chicago wheat which has suffered one of the worst beat downs of
all ag commodities. High risk events this week and next include the June 30
USDA reports and the multiple rounds of weather models over the long Fourth of
July weekend. Plenty of volatility upcoming in the ag space.
