CHICAGO, Jan. 15 (UPI) -- Grain futures closed mostly higher on the Chicago Board of Trade despite a 0.33 percent gain in the dollar index.

Corn was up 4 to up 7 3/4, soybeans were off 4 1/4 to off 6, wheat was up 15 3/4 to up 17 1/2 and oats were up 3/4 to up 2 1/2.

Corn prices rose modestly with fund b buying setting the pace. Wheat futures found support from tenders issued by Syria and Algeria, although demand is considered generally weak.
