6:00 a.m. CME Globex: December corn was fractionally lower, January soybeans
were 6 cents lower, and December Chicago (SRW) wheat was 4 cents lower.
CME Globex Recap: Regarding the title of this morning's commentary, you read
with either an American meaning (commodity markets all in the red) or with a
British dialect (bloody as a word to express annoyance or emphasis). The grain
and oilseed complex showed little interest overnight in follow-through buying
from Friday, led by soybeans. Wheat also took a hit while corn drifted lower.
Most other commodities also struggled, with only cotton showing a small gain
Monday morning. The U.S. dollar index was higher, but also well off its session
