Dec. 9 (Bloomberg) -- What follows are opening calls for U.S. grain and oilseed markets.
-- Soybean futures may open 7 cents to 15 cents a bushel lower on the Chicago Board of Trade after the government forecast rising U.S. and world inventories before the 2012 harvest, Jacquie Voeks, a senior market adviser for the Stewart-Peterson Group in West Bend, Wisconsin, said in a telephone interview. Soybean-oil futures are expected to open 0.3 cent to 0.4 cent a pound lower, and soybean-meal futures may open down $2 to $5 per 2,000 pounds.
-- Wheat futures may open 10 cents to 15 cents a bushel lower on the CBOT, the Kansas City Board of Trade and the Minneapolis Grain Exchange after the U.S. Department of Agriculture said global stockpiles next year will rise to a 10-year high, Voeks said.
-- Corn futures are called to open 4 cents to 7 cents a bushel lower in Chicago after the USDA said world reserves before next season’s harvest will rise more than expected, Voeks said.
