Options exercised to export the commodity from other than the United States were for China (60,000 MT). Exports of 1,027,700 MT were reported primarily to China (825,500 MT), Japan (67,000 MT), Indonesia (33,200 MT), Taiwan (30,100 MT), Canada (21,700 MT), and Mexico (21,200 MT).
Soybean futures closed lower on Thursday. On Friday futures were called 7 to 8 cents higher as they were able to bounce off the losses yesterday on stablized outside markets and some unfavorable soybean crop conditions in southern Brazil and Argentina.
