6:00 a.m. CME Globex:   March corn was 1 cent lower, January soybeans were 7
cents lower, and March Chicago (SRW) was 5 cents lower.

CME Globex Recap:   The highlight of the overnight session was the launch of
bitcoin futures on the CME's Chicago Board Options Exchange. The
crypto-currency didn't disappoint its enthusiasts, posting a $3,850 range
through its first morning of trade, or roughly 22% of its value. The equivalent
in corn would be a 75-cent range. Just in case you were wondering, that didn't
happen overnight. The grain and oilseed complex started lower and stayed lower
through early Monday morning led by soybeans. Other commodity sectors were
mixed.
