Market Commentary

Morning Comments 08/27

Hopes for a demand surge are supporting the soy complex. This week’s breakdown in old-crop bean and meal prices, as well as the sustained weakness suffered by the new crop markets, have obviously reduced soy costs to buyers. Traders now think those losses will spark renewed demand from domestic and export customers. September soybean futures rose 1.0 cent to $10.765/bushel in early Wednesday trading, but November futures bounced 3.75 cents to $10.3175. September soyoil added 0.05 cents to 33.08 cents/pound, and September soymeal rallied $6.1 to $394.8/ton.
