Pre-6 a.m. CDT prices, CME Globex: December corn is down 2 cents per bushel,
November soybeans are up 4 cents, and December KC wheat is up 3 3/4 cents.
CME Globex Recap: Global equity markets were higher around the globe
overnight with U.S. futures sharing the same sentiment early Thursday morning.
Markets are holding together well despite comments and indications from
Wednesday's FOMC meeting suggesting QE tapering could begin as soon as the next
meeting in November. With the addiction to easy money policies present in
financial markets, we are surprised to not see another "taper tantrum," but
there is plenty of time remaining before interest rates actually get raised.
Energy markets are weaker as is the U.S. Dollar Index. Metals markets are
weaker across the board overnight. Grain futures are mixed overnight with corn
and soymeal lower while wheat and the rest of the soy complex is firmer. Charts
are starting to turn up for soybeans and oil with spring wheat futures close to
doing the same.

Industrial Average up 338.48 at 34,258.32 and the S&P 500 up 41.45 at 4,354.19
