Morning CME Globex Update: December corn was down 2 1/4 cents, January soybeans were down 5 cents, and December Chicago wheat was down 5 3/4 cents. All three grains are lower early Friday, spooked by higher trading in the U.S. dollar index after the Bank of Japan announced that it increased its annual target of government bond purchases by roughly $135 billion. Friday will be another favorable day for harvest except in the eastern Midwest where a mix of snow and rain is falling.
