6:00 a.m. CME Globex:   May corn was fractionally higher, May soybeans were 1
cent lower, and July Kansas City (HRW) wheat was 2 cents lower.

CME Globex Recap:   The end of the month is fast approaching with the U.S.
dollar index nearing the establishment of a bearish range on its monthly chart.
Yes, the greenback was on the defensive again overnight into Monday morning,
though commodities in general didn't look to capitalize. Corn was showing a
small gain while gold jumped almost $10. Otherwise, the sector was mixed at
best.
