CONFUSION on understanding the GRAINS Trading Hours ??

Here are the Hours for the Grains ( Corn, Soybeans, Wheat, Soybean Oil, Soybean Meal ) via the CME website:

Sunday – Friday, 7:00 p.m. – 7:45 a.m. CT and
Monday – Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 1:20 p.m. CT

So does this mean that you can Place a trade on any of these Markets come 7:00 p.m. cst. on Sunday ?

THEN...... do these Markets all Close from 7:45 a.m. cst on Monday and then they RE-OPEN for trading at 8:30 cst. ?

I just want to make sure I understand how these hours work , as I don't want to get hit with Overnight Margin Requirements for holding a trade

Thanks so much for the help

You are correct.

But be aware that volume in overnight trading is low. Main trading hours are from 8.30 a.m. until 1.15 p.m. CT.
