INTERNATIONAL COMEX NEWS
- The global grain market needs more U.S. wheat to make up for tightening supply in other major exporting zones, but China will be able to keep shunning U.S. soybeans in its trade tussle with Washington, grain merchants said on Wednesday.

- When U.S. President Donald Trump asked Saudi Arabia this summer to raise oil production to compensate for lower crude exports from Iran, Riyadh swiftly told Washington it would do so.

- Hungary’s central bank (NBH) is expected to hold interest rates at record lows on Tuesday, but there is a chance it could send a signal about future tightening against a backdrop of robust economic growth and rising inflation. All 15 analysts in a Reuters poll taken from Nov. 8-15 said the bank would keep both its 0.9 percent base rate and its -0.15 percent overnight deposit rate unchanged. The base rate has stood there since May 2016 and the deposit rate since September 2017.
- Central banks are unlikely to issue digital currencies within the next decade, even in places where the use of cash is declining rapidly, European Central Bank board member Benoit Coeure said on Thursday. “There is broad agreement that a (central bank digital currency), in whatever form, is unlikely to be issued within the next decade, even among those four central banks that have indicated that they have reached the stage of developing a pilot project,” Coeure told a conference in Basel.
