Morning CME Globex Update:December corn is steady, January soybeans are down 2 1/2 cents, and December Chicago wheat is up 1 1/2 cents. Corn and wheat are slightly higher while soybeans are lower as the market anticipates the release of USDA's WASDE report at 11 a.m. CST. Light rain will move across the Northern Plains Friday, but the overall forecast favors the continuation of harvest this weekend and into next week. Friday morning's larger-than-expected increase in U.S. non-farm payrolls has the U.S. dollar index trading higher.

Other Markets:

Dow Jones: Lower
U.S. Dollar Index: Higher
Gold: Lower
Crude Oil: Higher
