Pre-6 a.m. Globex Prices: July corn is up 1 cent per bushel, July soybeans
are down 2 1/2 cents, and July KC wheat is up 2 cents.
CME Globex Recap: Equities are mostly lower overnight with the U.S. staring
at a lower open later Friday morning. Financial media are focused on possible
retaliation from President Trump at his press conference later Friday after
Beijing approved a sweeping national security law for Hong Kong. Most believe
sanctions will be levied against China and Chinese officials for the new law
which had the effect of removing Hong Kong's special trade status. Energy
markets are weaker with crude oil futures off close to 3.5%. Fixed income and
precious metal markets are higher, led by silver, which is up 1.10%. Grain
markets are mixed with higher wheat and corn while soybeans are off a couple
cents. Traders are looking forward to export sales later Friday morning as well
as the next round of weather maps midday. From now through July, markets will
be especially sensitive to changes from one model run to the next, which is
where the term "silly season" comes from. Welcome to the "silly season."
