Pre-6 a.m. Globex Prices: July corn is up 1 1/4 cents per bushel, July
soybeans are up 2 3/4 cents, and July KC wheat is up 5 cents.
CME Globex Recap: Global equity markets are mostly higher as the focus
shifts back to countries and states re-opening from coronavirus lockdowns as
opposed to U.S. and Chinese trade tensions. As of late, it has felt like it is
one of the two aforementioned narratives depending on which direction markets
re trading. Energy markets are weaker with spot crude oil down 1.2% and failing
so far to push through its 100-day moving average. Precious metals are mixed
with gold lower and silver higher. Grain markets are higher across the board,
led by Kansas City wheat and soybean oil. The weekly crop progress report
released Tuesday afternoon was mostly as expected and weather forecasts are
non-threatening well into June. Crop conditions should maintain current levels
or improve the next two weeks, which should keep the pressure on bulls.
OUTSIDE MARKETS: Previous closes on Tuesday showed the Dow Jones Industrial
Average up 529.95 at 24,995.11 and the S&P 500 up 36.32 at 2,955.45 while the

DAX up 191.16 points (1.66%) and France's CAC 40 up 92.29 points (2%). The June
Euro is up 0.003 at 1.100 and the June U.S. dollar index is down 0.146 at
98.760. The June 30-Year T-Bond is down 3/32nds, while June gold is down $7.60
