On Wednesday soybean futures ended higher on positive export news. Nearby soybean futures rose moderately in early trading on Thursday, though deferred contracts were depressed by a possible surge in South American supplies and a large U.S. crop later in 2013. March beans gained 6.5 cents to $14.64 in Wednesday night activity, while March soyoil slipped 0.10 cents to 49.17 cents/pound, whereas March meal climbed $3.3 to $432.6/ton.
