Wheat futures are now at the lowest level in 10 years on ample production in Eastern Europe and the U.S. The only area this year that didn't have good yields was France, which had a lot of low quality wheat due to poor weather. Pretty much every other growing region had good weather, which led us to where we are right now. Looks like more flooding is on the way for parts of Illinois and Indiana. Kansas and Missouri, and a county or two in Nebraska, also could see floods. This wet weather is both an angel and a demon these days as lots of disease being reported, or so I'm told.  
 

Here's what happened overnight:

 

Brent Crude Oil = 1.4% lower.
West Texas Intermediate Crude Oil = 1.3% lower.

Dollar = up 0.1%.

Wall Street = U.S. stock futures mixed in overnight trading. 
World Markets = Global stocks follow oil prices lower.
