OMAHA (DTN) -- Corn opened 16 to 20 cents lower in the old-crop market, following-through on Thursday's sell-off. Given the pool of sell orders and volatility, additional losses had been estimated in the 18 to 20 cent range. It is interesting that new-crop corn is holding near unchanged to up 1 cent higher in the opening minutes of the CME Globex session. Soybeans are about 3 cents lower while Chicago wheat is down about 5 cents. Outside markets are mostly bullish, though grains are paying little attention at this time.
