   PRE-6 A.M. GLOBEX PRICES: December corn is up 9 3/4 cents per bushel,
November soybeans are up 34 1/4 cents, and September KC wheat is up 27 1/2
cents.

   CME GLOBEX RECAP: Higher equity markets around the globe overnight with U.S.
futures higher ahead of unemployment data later Thursday. Investors are also
keen to see the latest jobs data on Friday morning, which will be the last
employment data ahead of the next Federal Reserve meeting. Futures markets are
now discounting a 96% chance of another 75-basis-point high in the Fed's
benchmark interest rate. Energy markets are firmer overnight as crude oil
continues to sit just below $100.00 per barrel. Many energy analysts have made
note this week that despite the sell-off in futures, the crude oil forward
curve has gotten stronger, indicating higher prices might not be far off. The
U.S. Dollar Index is slightly weaker overnight, hanging below Wednesday's
19-year high. Metals are firmer overnight with copper up over 4.0%. Grains are
sharply higher overnight with gains led by wheat contracts and soybean oil in
one of the best relief rallies we've seen in some time. Multiple days of gains
are needed to give confidence a bottom is in.
