Morning CME Globex Update:December corn is down 1 cent, November soybeans are down 15 1/4 cents, and December Chicago wheat is down 1 3/4 cents. Grains are trading lower in the aftermath of USDA's surprisingly bearish stocks figures for corn and soybeans on Monday. A lack of frost in the forecast continues to help corn and soybean crops reach maturity this fall and the U.S. dollar is trading lower on day one of the government shutdown. At 8 a.m., USDA said that China bought 113,000 tons of soybeans.
