CHICAGO, Illinois (Agriculture.com)--The pre-opening prices for the CME Group grain commodities for Thursday, March 24, 2011 are mostly higher. Corn is seen opening 1-2 cents higher, soybeans 2-4 cents higher, and wheat 1-2 cents lower. 

In overnight electronic trading, the May corn futures contract traded even at $6.81 per bushel. The May soybean futures contract traded 3 cents higher at $13.54 1/4 per bushel. The May wheat futures contract traded 1 1/2 cents lower at $7.12 3/4. For May soymeal futures, the contract traded $0.20 higher at $362.00, and May soyoil $0.07 higher at $55.55.

The outside markets are supportive for Thursday's grain trade. The real factors driving the higher early calls are the slightly higher overnight markets.
