OMAHA (DTN) -- As we near the close, December corn is down 3 cents, January soybeans are down 9 cents, and December Chicago wheat is down 5 1/2 cents. In spite of Thursday morning's bullish export sales figures for corn, soybeans, and wheat, all three grains are trading lower with pressure from a higher U.S. dollar. Earlier Thursday, Eurozone inflation was reported up .7% in October, the lowest in nearly four years while the unemployment rate stayed at a record high 12.2%. The weak data sent investors toward the U.S. dollar and is keeping most commodities lower on Thursday.
