Market Commentary

Afternoon Comments 09/02

Talk of excessive moisture apparently boosted beans and meal. Little fresh soy news emerged over the weekend, but traders seemed to decide that the prospect of significant short-term rainfall might hurt the current soy crop; that may reflect increased disease potential and slow maturity issues. Soyoil turned downward from early highs. November soybean futures closed 7.75 cents higher at $10.33/bushel Tuesday afternoon, while October soyoil slid 0.06 cents to 31.95 cents/pound, and October soymeal advanced $9.1 to $372.2/ton.
