On Friday, the CME Group's corn, soybean, and wheat markets are expected to start mixed.

 

The early calls for the commodities on Friday, August 2, 2013, are mixed. Corn is seen opening 2 to 3 cents lower, soybeans 6 to 8 cents higher, and wheat 2 to 4 cents higher.

In overnight trading, the Sept. corn futures contract traded 1 cent lower at $4.87 per bushel. Dec. corn futures traded 1 cent lower at $4.66 per bushel. Aug. soybean futures traded 5 cents higher at $13.63, while the Nov. soybean futures traded 6 cents higher at $11.98. The Sept. wheat futures contract traded 3 cents higher at $6.60. For Dec. soybean meal futures, the contract traded $2.20 per short ton higher at $361.40; Dec. soybean oil futures traded 7 cents higher at $42.99.


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