6:00 a.m. CME Globex: December corn was down 1/4 cent, November soybeans were
down 2 cents, and December KC wheat was unchanged.
CME Globex Recap: Mostly quiet equity markets to close the week. Incredible
volatility continues to grip the energy markets with natural gas following its
18% rally on Wednesday with a 13% drop on Thursday. The liquidation in crude
oil has us wondering what that does to the opinion of managed funds toward
grains? Quiet overnight trade in grains with most contracts looking at a lower
close for the week. Holiday-mode trade begins next week.
