EARLY GLOBEX PRICES: December corn was up 3 cents, November soybeans were up
11 cents and December KC wheat was up 10 cents.
CME GLOBEX RECAP: Early Tuesday, stock futures in the U.S. are starting
higher with stocks in Asia and Europe also higher. Several Fed officials are
scheduled to speak Tuesday and the general theme seems to be that it is better
for the Fed to take a hawkish stand now rather than let inflation linger.
Reports later Tuesday will include U.S. durable goods, new home sales and a
U.S. index of consumer confidence.
