DTN Grain Open: Higher as Harvest Delays Persist

6:00 a.m. CME Globex: December corn is up 2 cents per bushel, November soybeans are up 5 1/2 cents, and December K.C. wheat is up 3 1/4 cents.

CME Globex Recap: Global equity markets are higher around the globe, despite a weekend vote in the U.K. that failed to secure backing for an official ‘Brexit.’ According to financial media, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson will make another attempt Monday to secure a win with parliament and have his Brexit deal with the European Union supported.

Grain markets have shaken off early session weakness to post gains across the board as additional delays loom with U.S. harvest as a giant band of moisture stretches from eastern Texas to North Dakota and works east. The weekly progress report on Monday afternoon should show sizable delays relative to average on both corn and soybean harvest, although decent progress was made on bean harvest before the weekend moisture.

No updates to the U.S.-China trade deal, but that will continue to grab headlines as we get ready for the economic conference in Chile which both President Trump and President Xi are expected to attend.
