Ethanol futures closed mixed to mostly lower Wednesday following pressure in corn prices. The lower corn market led to moderate to strong losses through the complex. September futures continue to gain support as buyers are focusing on short-term demand support. Front-month futures gained 0.3 cent per gallon, to close at $2.483 a gallon. Other nearby contracts lost 3 to 4 cents per gallon, which further widened the price spread between the September and October contracts. The inability to sustain contracts through the fourth quarter of the year may create longer-term pressure through the entire ethanol market.
