The CME Group corn, soybean and wheat markets are expected to trade higher Tuesday. 

The Early Calls for the commodities on Tuesday, July 31, 2012, are higher. Corn is seen opening 3-5 cents higher, soybeans 13-15 cents higher, and wheat 3-5 cents higher.

In overnight trading, the Sep. corn futures contract traded 2 3/4 cents  higher at $8.22 3/4 per bushel, the Dec. up 4 3/4 cents at $8.18 3/4. The Sep. wheat futures traded 2 1/2 cents higher at $9.17. Aug. soybean futures traded 12 3/4 cents higher at $17.38 1/2, while the Nov. soybean futures traded 17 3/4 cents higher at $16.61 1/4.

The outside markets are favorable for Wednesday's grain trade. The real factors driving the calls will be the higher overnight markets.
