Market Commentary

Midday Report 07/28

The soy complex is bumping up against technical resistance. Talk of strong bean sales to China, as indicated by early-morning news and the Export Inspections report, and signs of persistent Corn Belt dryness have boosted bean and product prices to start the week. The nearby bean and meal contracts are bumping up against resistance associated with their 20-day moving averages. August soybean futures climbed 16.75 cents to $12.29/bushel in late Monday morning action, while November futures surged 16.75 cents to $11.0025. August soyoil bounced 0.37 cents to 36.46 cents/pound and August soymeal added $5.0 to $403.0/ton.
