   Pre-6 a.m. Globex Prices: September corn is up 4 1/4 cents per bushel,
November soybeans are up 10 cents, and September KC wheat is up 3 1/2 cents.

   CME Globex Recap: Sharply higher global equities overnight, led by China
which saw the largest one-day rally in over a year as state-run media talk up
the economy recovery. Financial media were citing a front-page editorial in
state-run publications talking about the prospect of a "healthy" bull market,
which caused retail investors to pile in, knowing government support was
present. U.S. stock futures joined in overnight with gains of 1.3% expected
when cash opens Monday morning. Energy markets are higher, fixed income is
slightly lower while precious metals are mixed. Grain markets are higher across
the board, supported by concern over current weather models for the Midwest the
next two weeks. We've officially entered the season of reacting to each and
every weather model produced, throwing a healthy dose of volatility into the
mix. Traders will want to see fresh highs made early this week to keep this run
going.
