Spot ethanol prices at the New York Harbor and at the Argo terminal near Chicago were discussed lower in a thin early trade session Thursday, pressured by a broad-based selloff in commodities such as gasoline.

"Overall, crowded markets (lead to) profit-taking," said a trade source based in New York.
