Pre-6 a.m. Globex Prices: Prices: September corn is up 1 1/4 cents per
bushel, November soybeans are up 1 cent, and September KC wheat is down 1 cent.
CME Globex Recap: Global equity markets are higher around the globe
overnight ahead of the latest U.S. payroll data which is expected to show more
than three million jobs added during the month of June. If confirmed, it would
be the second straight month of gains following the 20.7 million jobs lost in
April as the United States slowly climbs back from the coronavirus pandemic.
Energy markets are higher while precious metals are mixed with gold firmer and
silver slightly weaker. Grain markets are mixed with row crops firmer and wheat
weaker as corn and soybeans attempt to add to an impressive week of trade.
Three-day weekends during the growing season can add a lot of volatility given
how many times weather models can change by the time markets reopen. Additional
short-covering into the weekend would not surprise as funds lighten risk until
forecasts look less problematic.
