OMAHA (DTN) -- December corn is down 3 3/4 cents, November soybeans are down 17 1/2 cents and September Chicago wheat is up 6 1/4 cents. Corn and soybeans remain lower with rain in the forecast, but Chicago wheat is on track for its fifth-consecutive gain with help from persistent and untimely rains in Europe. The U.S. dollar index is trading at its highest level in nearly 11 months after ISM's index of U.S. services posted its highest reading since records began in January 2008, said RTTNews.com.
