Early Call On CBOT

The overnight grains closed mixed with beans 2-4 cents higher, corn was just fractions into positive territory with wheat fractions the other way.

Crude oil and the dollar are both slightly firmer, but could go either way.

US weather remains largely non-threatening, with a cool down on the way for July 4th.

Rumours suggest that China has been back buying old crop US soybeans, but there have been no official confirmations as yet.

It could be a quiet tidying up pre-weekend session, with the USDA's planting intentions and stocks reports due next Wednesday.

South Korea bought 55,000 MT of corn, 30,000 MT of non-GMO soybeans and 55,000 MT of feed wheat overnight. Tunisia bought 50,000 MT of any origin wheat, probably Black Sea/French.

Early calls for this afternoon's CBOT session: Corn called 1 to 2 higher; Soybeans called 2 to 4 higher; Wheat called flat to 1 lower.
