6:00 a.m. CME Globex: December corn was unchanged, November soybeans were 7
cents higher, and September Chicago wheat was 2 cents lower.
CME Globex Recap: Corn and soybeans were higher overnight night, though both
showed unconvincing rallies. In fact, it is highly likely that neither finish
the overnight session on the plus side of unchanged. Soybeans were supported by
light commercial buying, as indicated by the action in futures spreads. Wheat
contracts were lower, quietly erasing part of Monday's rally. Outside markets
were mostly lower despite a sell-off by the U.S. dollar index ahead of Day One
of the FOMC's two-day July meeting.

at 18,493.06, the NASDAQ Composite lost 2.53 points to 5,097.63, and the S&P
