The heat wave in the central US continues as the heat index today is expected to reach a painful 111 degrees in some parts of Oklahoma and along the Kansas-Missouri border today. The excessive heat is leading to all sorts of warnings, watches and advisories. It's also threatening a lot of newly planted corn and beans, which is underpinning prices, though soybeans were lower overnight on global demand worries.

 

Here's what happened overnight:

 

Brent Crude Oil = 1.6% lower. 

West Texas Intermediate Crude Oil = 1.5% lower.

Dollar = up 0.3%.

Wall Street = U.S. stock futures lower in pre-market trading. 
World Markets = Global stocks declining amid worries about Britain leaving the European Union.

We are not in a weather market...............................................................yet.      USDA's numbers are still on the table.   Although that table has a leg that's about ready to collapse.
