Pre-6 a.m. Globex Prices: December corn is down 2 1/4 cents per bushel,
November soybeans are down 6 1/2 cents, and September KC wheat is up 9 cents.
CME Globex Recap: Mixed equity trade overnight with U.S. futures mostly flat
ahead of the conclusion of the two-day FOMC meeting. Experts think Fed Chair
Powell will mostly use his post-meeting conference to try to keep markets calm,
especially against a backdrop of rising Delta variant cases and the recent
Chinese regulatory crackdown. It will be difficult for Chairman Powell to
ignore rising inflation indicators, however, or to continue to dismiss them as
transitory. Energy markets are higher with crude oil continuing to grind
higher. The U.S. Dollar Index is higher, trying to end a two-day losing streak.
Metals markets are higher, being led by silver which is up 0.80%. Grain markets
are mixed overnight with weaker corn prices and a lower soy complex while wheat
markets are solidly higher overnight. It will be interesting to see if wheat
can hold its double digit price gains into the day session.
