6:00 a.m. CME Globex: July corn unchanged, July soybeans are up 1/4 cents,
and September K.C. wheat is up 6 3/4 cents.
CME Globex Recap: Equity markets are higher around the globe Thursday morning
as investors remain optimistic about a trade deal on the sidelines of the G-20
summit in Japan this weekend. Positive comments continue from the Trump
Administration but always with the qualifier that additional tariffs could be
put in place if a trade deal doesn't happen. We've been down this road before
and grain markets are unlikely to pay any mind until something factual is
produced. Grain markets are mostly higher overnight, led by the three wheat
exchanges as Chicago breaks out to multi-month highs. Technical action looks
good in wheat as flagging formations lull momentum traders back into the fold.
Row crops have traded both sides overnight, awaiting updated export sales for
short-term direction heading into Friday's acreage and stocks reports from USDA.
