Money managers increased their bearish positions in CBOT corn futures and options in the week ended Tuesday, CFTC data show. Managed funds, including hedge funds, had a net short position of 55,767 contracts in CBOT corn, up 180% on the week. The increase came as corn traders factored in the potential for substantial increases in U.S. production in 2013. (andrew.johnsonjr@dowjones.com)
