CHICAGO, Oct. 25 (UPI) -- Grain futures closed mostly lower on the Chicago Board of Trade Thursday as the dollar index rose slightly and equities closed with moderate gains.

Corn was off 10 3/4 to off 12 1/2, soybeans were off 6 1/2 to up 3/4, wheat was off 1/2 to off 11 1/4 and oats were up 1 to up 4 1/2.

Corn futures closed lower after export sales for the week came in lower than expected.

In the wheat market, prices fell, but found support from a late rally in soybeans. The soybean market also lost ground in a day marked by profit-taking that closed with a late upswing.
