6:00 a.m. CME Globex: December corn is up 1 cent per bushel, November
soybeans are up 7 1/4 cents, and December K.C. wheat is up 2 cents.
CME Globex Recap: Equity markets are mixed to lower to begin the new trading
week with investors focusing on trade chatter ahead of high-level trade talks
scheduled for October 10 as well as the ongoing geopolitical risks between Iran
and Saudi Arabia. After assuring markets full oil production would be restored
in a matter of weeks, Saudi officials said over the weekend full production
following the drone attacks may not be restored for months. Markets remain on
edge regarding a U.S.-China trade deal after deputy level talks were deemed
"constructive," but President Trump said he wasn't interested in a "partial
deal." Grain markets are higher with the exception of Chicago wheat. Soybeans
and Minneapolis wheat are leading strength with the former bolstered by the
prospect of increased export demand while the latter keeps the pulse of harvest
delays and quality issues in the U.S. and Canada. Harvest reports continue to
slowly trickle in across the Midwest with harvest expected to pick up steam
once the calendar flips to October.
