Grain futures are softer this morning. But while losses on the board are fairly modest, Wall Street is getting ready for a rocky start, with index futures indicating a sharply lower open ahead of today’s jobs numbers for January.

Export sales gave corn a boost yesterday, but sales of soybeans and wheat remain a concern.
