One analyst says, "The bearish corn and wheat market factors are harvest activity and the lack of demand. For soybeans, strong export sales have supported the price action today. I am starting to line up my buy-side guys to be ready, if the market keeps working lower," he says. I think mostly spec selling today, hearing very little farm movement. I also think that price and time are starting to converge on the harvest pressure and that we might see this thing form a low and move a bit higher in a week or two."
The soybean market has turned higher, up 6 cents. The market sees this commodity as oversold and the fresh demand today is helping.

That was not listed as 'exports'. It was 'sales'. 'Sales' are not very indicative of ultimate exports when the market is changing direction. Buyers will hold off if they think it's going their direction and pile in when it goes the other way.
