6:00 a.m. CME Globex:    December corn is up 3/4 cent per bushel, January
soybeans are up 3/4 cent, and December KC wheat is up 3 cents.

CME Globex Recap:    Global stocks are higher in the overnight session with
investors looking forward to President Donald Trump's speech at the Economic
Club of New York, which is focused on trade and economic policy. Any comments
from the president about the trade war could provide additional market-moving
headlines. Financial markets are also looking forward to Fed Chair Powell's
testimony in front of Congress on Wednesday and Thursday, which he could use as
an opportunity to reiterate his stance of not needing any additional interest
rate cuts. Grain markets are higher across the board, bouncing from Monday's
weaker session as the focus shifts from the November WASDE supply changes back
to U.S. demand, South American weather and U.S.-China trade talks. It would
seem psychologically significant that corn futures no longer have a contract
above $4.00 through December 2020, especially as we get close to the holiday
doldrums between Thanksgiving and Christmas. With the early seed-buying period
for next spring already upon producers, the discussion will also be shifting to
acreage intentions.

Average up 10.25 at 27,691.49 and the S&P 500 down 6.07 at 3,093.08 while the
