soybeans are up 9 3/4 cents, and March KC wheat is down 2 3/4 cents.
CME Globex Recap: Equity markets are weaker around the globe overnight after
Wall Street posted its worst single day since October on Wednesday. Analysts
pointed toward a host of worse than expected earnings results with the selling
coming despite the Federal Reserve reassuring markets it would keep monetary
policy easy for the foreseeable future. Overnight, energy markets are weaker
but mainly holding in recent ranges. The U.S. Dollar Index is a touch firmer
overnight, continuing to play tag with its 50-day moving average. Grain markets
are mostly weaker overnight, giving back part of Wednesday's gains as traders
await updated export sales later Thursday morning.

Industrial Average down 633.87 at 30,303.17 and the S&P 500 down 98.85 at
