Posted 08:38-- After the 8:30 bell, December corn is up 1 1/2 cents, November soybeans are up 3/4 cent, and September Chicago wheat is up 5 1/4 cents. At 8 a.m., USDA said that 130,000 metric tons of U.S. corn (5.1 mb) were sold to unknown destinations for 2014-15 and 107,600 tons (4.2 mb) of the same were sold to Mexico. Grains are trying to shake off Tuesday's mostly bearish USDA estimates and are trading higher early.
