Afternoon Comments 10/31

Talk of tight meal conditions sparked broad soy gains. Soybean and product futures seemed to lose their upward momentum this morning, particularly as the U.S. dollar soared to its highest level since June 2010. However, persistent talk of ongoing meal shortages seemed to spark a fresh buying surge, which sent the whole complex higher at the close. November soybean futures soared 22.25 cents to $10.465/bushel at their Friday settlement, while December soyoil ran up 0.49 cents to 34.80 cents/pound, and December soymeal surged $9.0 to $389.0/ton.
