OMAHA (DTN) -- Grains continue to trade lower Thursday morning, though activity seems to be light. Little change has been seen from earlier, with corn still down about 5 cents, soybeans down about 1 cent, and Chicago wheat down 2 cents. Commercial buying continues to be seen in soybeans, supporting the nearby contracts and leading to occasional bumps back to near unchanged. Outside markets remain mostly bullish with the U.S. dollar index lower ahead of this week's jobless claims report. Dow Jones Industrial Average futures have trimmed gains to only 7 points, while most commodities continue to trade mostly higher.
