9 cents and December KC wheat was up 5 cents.
CME GLOBEX RECAP: Early Thursday, stock futures in the U.S. were starting
lower again, along with stocks in Europe. It is looking like Wednesday's
reprieve from all the bearish concerns about higher interest rates was a
one-day event as T-bond prices are sharply lower and the U.S. dollar is higher.
In addition to USDA's weekly export sales report at 7:30 a.m. CDT, there will

2 p.m. CDT.
