Morning CME Globex Update: December corn is down 3 cents, November soybeans are down 11 1/2 cents, and December Chicago wheat is down 2 1/4 cents. Grains are lower Wednesday morning with November soybeans unable to take out its contract high of $14.09 3/4 while Congress debates the situation in Syria. The north-central Plains have chances for light rain Wednesday, but overall the seven-day forecast remains dry and crops remain under stress. December corn and wheat are trading lower with investors favoring liquidity in the current political environment.
