The early calls for the commodities on Friday, January 24, 2014, are lower. Corn is seen opening 2-4 cents lower, soybeans 3-5 cents lower to 3-5 cents higher, and wheat 2-4 cents lower.

In overnight trading, the March corn futures contract traded 2 1/2 cents lower at $4.26 per bushel. The March soybean futures traded 6 cents lower at $12.70. The March wheat futures contract traded 2 1/2 cents lower at $5.67. For March soybean meal futures, the contract traded $1.20 per short ton lower at $417.50; March soybean oil futures traded $0.44 lower at $37.42.
