On Thursday, the CME Group's corn and wheat markets are expected to start higher.

The early calls for the commodities on Thursday, March 13, 2014, are mostly higher. Corn is seen opening 2-4 cents higher, soybeans 1-2 cents lower, and wheat 3-5 cents higher.

In overnight trading, the May corn futures contract traded 2 cents higher at $4.90 per bushel. May soybean futures traded 1 cent lower at $13.86. The May wheat futures contract traded 5 3/4 cents higher at $6.89. For May soybean meal futures, the contract traded $0.40 per short ton lower at $436.10; May soybean oil futures traded $0.19 lower at $43.23.

The outside markets are favorable for Thursday's grain trade. The real factors driving the calls will be the mostly higher overnight markets.
