EARLY MORNING GLOBEX NET CHANGES: July corn is down 3 1/4 cents per bushel,
July soybeans are up 1/2 cent, July KC wheat is up 1 1/2 cents, July Chicago
wheat is down 3/4 cent and July Minneapolis wheat is up 5 1/2 cents.
CME GLOBEX RECAP: Equity markets are slightly lower in the U.S. Thursday
morning after a mixed session Wednesday that saw the Dow rally almost 100
points while the S&P was slightly lower. This week, we have seen both the
Reserve Bank of Australia and the Bank of Canada raise rates by 1/4 point,
surprising market participants in both cases. This has some traders wondering
if the U.S. Fed will do something similar at their meeting next week. Prior to
the meeting, we will see the release of the May CPI and PPI numbers, and that
data might well be the decision maker for the Fed.
