Ethanol futures ended the year under pressure following additional softness in both the corn and energy markets. Trade volume remained sluggish Tuesday with traders seemingly more focused on evening and holiday plans than making an additional investment shift in the market before the end of the year. January futures posted a 3.1-cent-per-gallon loss, closing at $1.911 a gallon with other nearby contracts falling 2 to 3 cents per gallon losses. The longer-term concern in the market is based on the potential moves in the corn market which could continue to lower current production costs through early spring.
