Grain futures mostly higher

Jan. 22, 2013 at 6:36 PM

CHICAGO, Jan. 22 (UPI) -- Grain futures closed mostly higher Tuesday with the dollar index off 0.22 percent to 79.84 on the International Exchange.

Corn was off 3/4 to up 1, soybeans were up 19 3/4 to up 22 1/2, wheat was off 10 to off 12 and oats were up 3 1/2 to up 4 1/2.

Corn found support from soybeans, which rose sharply on demand expectations. Wheat futures slipped early prompting a day of profit-taking. Soybeans moved higher with a boost from continued dry weather in Argentina, the weaker dollar and bullish export data.

The prices:

Corn: Mar 7.28 1/2 up 1, May 7.30 1/4 up 1, Jly 7.22 1/4 up 3/4, Sep 6.12 3/4 off 3/4.
