Pre-6 a.m. Globex Prices: December corn is up 1/4 cent per bushel, November
soybeans are down 2 1/4 cents, and September KC wheat is up 1 1/2 cents.
CME Globex Recap: Global equities are mostly lower overnight with the U.S.
staring at a lower open ahead of the latest jobs data later Friday morning. The
July payroll data is expected to show an increase of 1.5 million jobs which
would be a slowdown from the 4.8 million added in June and 2.7 million added in
May. Energy markets are weaker overnight with the spot contract unable to push
through the 200-day moving average so far. The U.S. Dollar Index is higher
overnight but mostly consolidating near recent lows. Precious metals are
slightly weaker overnight. Grain markets are mixed overnight with wheat showing
strength while row crops are steady to lower. Ideas of growing supply continue
to more than offset strong demand on the export front. Until the market gets
past the August WASDE, it will be difficult to move the focus off yield.
