CME GLOBEX RECAP: The month of July doesn't look to be any different for
global equity markets than June with most major indices off to a weak start.
The first half of 2022 was the worst start to a year in the United States since
1970 which has soured sentiment across asset classes of all shapes and sizes.
Energy markets are beginning July on a firmer note, although downtrends are
mostly still in place with. The U.S. Dollar Index is firmer overnight with
long-term trends still up but below the multi-decade highs notched in mid-June.
Metals are sharply lower overnight with copper and silver both off more than
3.0%. Grain markets are a mixed bag overnight with the soy complex lower while
corn and wheat post small gains. Bulls are hopeful a new month and quarter will
bring speculative inflows into the space although that sentiment doesn't seem
to be shared by any other financial instrument so far.
