4 cents lower, and July Kansas City wheat was 2 cents higher.

breather from Thursday's strong post-report rally. Only Kansas City HRW wheat
continued to trade higher, spurred on by USDA's larger than expected reduction
in planted acres. Softs were mostly lower while energies and metals were red
across the board. The U.S. dollar index continued to sink while DJIA futures
