Grain futures are lower this morning, attracting some follow-through selling after Tuesday’s decline. Some of the pressure may be seasonal, as buyers turn to South America for soybeans and Chinese traders prepare for week-long Lunar New Year holidays. Crude oil and gold are also lower despite a weaker dollar and gains on stock markets around the world.
