6:00 a.m. CME Globex:   July corn was 1 cent lower, July soybeans were
fractionally lower, and July Kansas City (HRW) wheat was 2 cents higher.

CME Globex Recap:   Once again, grain markets were mixed early Friday morning
following a quiet overnight session. Kansas City (HRW) continued to show the
most strength, as far as gains go, though the complex in general showed little
buying interest associated to the sell-off in the U.S. dollar. Energies and
metals were mostly higher while softs were mostly lower, the latter continuing
Thursday's rough session.

at 20,981.33. The NASDAQ Composite gained 23.71 points (0.4%) to 6,048.94 and
