CME Globex Recap: Stronger equity markets overnight with U.S. futures
painting a higher open for cash markets when they open Thursday morning.
Optimism about another stimulus package in the United States before the
November election seems to be growing. Energy markets are weaker with the
exception of natural gas which is up over 2.0% and continues its erratic trade
of late. The U.S. Dollar Index is weaker overnight, slipping back below the
94-handle level and closing in on the 50-day moving average at 93.32. Precious
metals are firmer. Grain markets are higher overnight, adding to Wednesday's
impressive gains following the bullish slate of USDA reports. To call
Wednesday's USDA data a curve ball would be underselling the changes in a
dramatic way. USDA reaching back in time to make revisions is something no one
saw coming but will hold implications for months to come.

Industrial Average up 329.04 at 27,781.70 and the S&P 500 up 27.53 at 3,335.47
