On Wednesday morning soybean futures were able to sustain most of their early gains well into the noon hour as talks of dryness in Argentina helped to provide support. An early-morning slide in the soybean market on Thursday did not inspire confidence, and March beans fell 5 3/4 cents to at $14.30 3/4 in pre-dawn electronic trading, while March soyoil dipped 0.28 cents to 51.03 cents/pound and March meal lost $1.8 to $417.3/ton.
