CME Globex Recap:
Global equity markets were mixed-to-higher overnight with U.S. futures
slightly higher following another record close on Thursday in the S&P 500.
Financial media outlets reported overnight China Evergrande Group made an
overdue interest payment to international bondholders, according to Chinese
state-owned media. The payment staved off default and may have given investors
a little more confidence the entire property market in China is not on the
brink of collapse. Energy markets were firmer overnight with crude oil just
below the $83.00 level as the uptrend continues. The U.S. Dollar Index was
weaker overnight but remains inside the previous day's range. Metals were
firmer overnight led by silver, which was up 1.08%. Grain markets were higher
across the board with gains led by wheat contracts as Kansas City climbs double
digits on the front end.

6.26 at 35,603.08 and the S&P 500 up 13.59 at 4,536.19 while the 10-year
