Global markets are bleeding red ink this morning, beset by worries about violence in Hong Kong and doubts about trade talks between the U.S. and China. Grain futures joined the downdraft after USDA’s monthly crop reports failed to deliver much in the way of bullish surprises. Most markets are open though federal government offices including USDA are closed for Veterans Day.
