CME Globex Recap: Lightly mixed equity trade overnight with U.S. futures
pointing toward a quiet open. Investors were encouraged by data from China
showing a second straight month of manufacturing growth as the world's second
largest economy continues to recover from coronavirus. Energy markets are
higher with crude oil rallying sharply overnight by over 3.0% and reclaiming
the $40 per barrel mark. The 200-day moving average sits just overhead for spot
crude at $44.27 per barrel. Precious metals are higher overnight, led by silver
which is up 0.88%. Grain markets are higher across the board overnight, led by
corn and soybean meal as buyers follow through from the solid trade Tuesday.
Gains on Tuesday in corn were the largest in the life of the contract,
highlighting how sleepy trade has been the last several months. With a smaller
acreage base, yield estimates will take greater focus with weather forecasts
moving markets intra-day. Farm marketing should accelerate at these prices and
higher as producers play catch-up following the lowest new crop prices in over
a decade this spring.
