Pre-6 a.m. Globex Prices: December corn is down 1 1/4 cents per bushel, November soybeans are up 5 3/4 cents, and December KC wheat is up 1 1/2 cents.

CME Globex Recap: Grain markets are mixed with corn and Chicago wheat lower while the soy complex and hard wheats are higher. Soybeans continue to impress all market participants, especially now that the $10.00 level has been conquered. Harvest will begin soon across the Midwest which should bring with it more selling of soybeans than corn according to producer reports.

Global equity markets are mostly higher around the globe with Wall Street pointed toward a higher day for the second session in a row.
