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


The early calls for the commodities on Thursday, October 17, 2013, are higher. Corn is seen opening 2 to 4 cents higher, soybeans 3 to 5 cents higher, and wheat 5 to 7 cents higher.


In overnight trading, the Dec. corn futures traded 2 3/4 cents higher at $4.45 per bushel. The Nov. soybean futures traded 3 1/4 cents higher at $12.79. The Dec. wheat futures contract traded 5 1/4 cents higher at $6.86. For Dec. soybean meal futures, the contract traded $0.90 per short ton higher at $404.70; Dec. soybean oil futures traded $0.12 higher at $41.49.


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