Market Commentary

Afternoon Comments 10/20

Beans and meal rebounded from early lows. The dryer weather experienced over the weekend and the prospect of much more of the same during the days ahead clearly depressed the soy complex to start the week. However, the Export Inspections report stated the soybean figure well above the predicted range, which brought beans and meal back from their early lows. Oil remained under pressure. November soybean futures ended Monday having fallen 7.5 cents to $9.4425 bushel, while December soyoil tumbled 0.32 cents to 31.70 cents/pound, and December soymeal sank $1.1 to $329.4.
