Morning CME Globex Update:Corn 4 higher, Soybeans 10 1/2 higher, Wheat 8 3/4 higher. Investors seem eager to go long in a variety of markets Thursday morning (stocks, metals, energies, and agricultural commodities), encouraged by the Fed's decision to keep feeding the metaphorical bull a steady diet of Fed-purchased bonds. This is helping to keep corn, soybeans, and wheat from retesting recent lows.

Other Markets:

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