Market Commentary

Afternoon Comments 10/22

Traders cited profit-taking and hedge pressure for Wednesday’s bean drop. Talk of strong Chinese sales, a slow U.S. harvest and poor Brazilian conditions helped send the soy complex strongly higher this morning. Wire service sources cited bullish profit-taking and hedge pressure for the surprising reversal in bean and meal prices. Whatever the cause, the failed November bean push above its 40-day MA could spur aggressive technical selling. November soybean futures ended Wednesday 1.5 cents lower at $9.6275/bushel, while December soyoil climbed 0.38 cents to 32.14 cents/pound, and December soymeal slumped $4.9 to $338.0/ton.
