   The Rich Little Syndrome

Chicago (SRW) wheat was 1 cent higher.

6:00 a.m. CME Globex:   March corn was fractionally lower, March soybeans were
unchanged, and March Chicago (SRW) wheat was 1 cent higher.

CME Globex Recap:   Grain and oilseed markets are doing impersonations early
Thursday morning with wheat trying to be a bull market, soybeans pulling off a
strong corn impression, and corn convincing everyone it's actually a door knob.
The net result of this overnight talent show is a solidly mixed morning. In
other news, cotton is pretending to be cattle as it posts a strong triple-digit
rally. Gold and crude oil are both lower, despite a weaker U.S. dollar and DJIA
futures are near unchanged following Wednesday's 300 point-plus rally by the
big board.

OUTSIDE MARKETS:   The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed 322.79 points (1.3%)
higher at 26,115.65, the NASDAQ Composite gained 74.59 points (1.0%) to
7,298.28, and the S&P 500 gained 26.14 points (0.9%) to 2,802.56 Wednesday.
DJIA futures were 2 points higher early Thursday morning. Asian markets closed
mostly higher with Japan's Nikkei 225 down 104.97 points (0.4%), Hong Kong's
Hang Seng up 138.53 points (0.4%), and China's Shanghai Composite adding 30.08
points (0.9%). European markets were trading mostly higher with London's FTSE
100 off 30.99 points (0.4%), Germany's DAX up 55.98 points (0.4%), and France's

dollar index fell 0.36 to 90.62. March 30-year T-Bonds were 19/32 lower at
149'23 while February gold fell $8.80 to $1,330.40. Crude oil was $0.03 lower
