Pre-6 a.m. Globex Prices: July corn is up 1/2 cent per bushel, July soybeans
are up 2 1/2 cents, and July KC wheat is up 1 1/4 cents.
CME Globex Recap: Another day, another rally in global equity markets which
is becoming the norm as opposed to the exception investors had become so used
to February through March. On Wednesday, the ADP private payroll report showed
fewer jobs lost during the month of May than analysts had feared, setting the
tone for a more optimistic May unemployment report from the government later
Friday morning. The jobs report will undoubtedly set the tone into the weekend.
Higher energy markets with crude oil making fresh highs for the move. Precious
metals are weaker. Grain markets are steady to higher across the board with
favorable technical patterns emerging for many contracts. With the structure of
most ag markets featuring sizable to near record short positions held by the
managed funds, additional covering should support into the weekend and possibly
into next week.
