Grain markets were back up in Thursdays trade, in some cases making up for the losses seen on Wednesday. From the floor of the CME in Chicago, here’s Scott Shellady:

Shellady…”We had a ton of corn exports to Mexico. We were the fifth largest daily export numbers since records began. That's going to get anything going to the upside. That's a really good number. So that's really something that the market got ahold of and got behind, and that's the reason why he saw it up as much as it was.”

March Corn closed up $0.06 1/2 to $377 ½.
