6:00 a.m. CME Globex: December corn was 1 cent higher, January soybeans were 3
cents higher, and December Kansas City (HRW) wheat was 2 cents higher.
CME Globex Recap: The grain and oilseed complex, like much of the rest of the
larger commodity complex, was showing green early Friday morning. Soybeans and
corn were generally limited to erasing Thursday's sell-off, while wheat tried
to build on the previous day's small rally. Softs, energies, and metals were
also showing gains, mostly, with light support possibly tied to the lower U.S.
dollar index. Also, DJIA futures were lower again as the Big Board is expected
to continue its volatile ways Friday.

higher at 23,458.36, the NASDAQ Composite gained 87.08 points (1.3%) to
6,793.29, and the S&P 500 rallied 21.02 points (0.8%) to 2,585.64 Thursday.
