Market Commentary

Afternoon Comments 10/30

Soy market bulls reportedly took profits Thursday. The tight supply situation for soybeans and meal apparently continued supporting those markets Wednesday night. But futures turned decidedly lower this morning despite an unsurprising result on the weekly Export Sales report and daily news of a sizeable sale to China. It was rather clear that bulls were taking profits after the overnight loss of upward momentum. November soybean futures dove 18.75 cents to $10.2425/bushel as the CBOT pit session ended, but December soyoil sustained a 0.13-cents rise to 34.31 cents/pound, while December soymeal tumbled $17.2 to $380.0/ton.
