Morning CME Globex Update: December corn was down 2 cents, November soybeans were down 4 1/2 cents, and September Chicago wheat was down 5 3/4 cents. All three grains are trading lower, bracing for the possibility of a bearish WASDE report, due out at 11 a.m. CDT. Monday afternoon's Crop Progress reports saw slight declines in crop ratings for corn and beans, but ratings are still high for this time of year.
