Ethanol futures posted strong gains following another supportive trading session in the corn market. February ethanol futures nearly doubled the gains seen in other nearby contracts by posting a 5-cent-per-gallon rally, closing at $1.95 per gallon. The focus on higher production costs and the potential that this may start to limit not only margins but ethanol plant operations is helping to support front-month futures prices. Other nearby contracts posted gains of 2.8 to 3.4 cents per gallon as traders are looking for additional support from longer term moves in both the energy and corn markets.
