6:00 a.m. CME Globex: December corn was down 1/4 cents, November soybeans
were up 5 cents, and December K.C. wheat was down 2 1/4 cents.
CME Globex Recap: Mixed equity markets Tuesday morning but the real feature
is the continued strength in energy markets. Crude oil is trading to fresh 2
1/2-month highs as the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries sees
no reason to increase production to bring down oil prices. The Trump
administration is likely to find themselves at odds with OPEC, adding to trade
woes. The soy complex is bouncing overnight on strength from Chinese markets
while grains continue to back-and-fill.
