Soybeans were lower overnight on renewed trade-war tensions. The Trump Administration may be considering raising levies on the $200 billion in Chinese goods on which it plans to impose tariffs from 10% to 25%, according to reports from several news outlets. The news was first reported by Bloomberg. China said overnight they would again retaliate if the US moves forward with that plan. Beans, in response, dropped 11 cents overnight. Corn was about a penny lower and wheat was a nickel higher. Prices had just turned higher, rising more than 10% in the past two weeks, before optimism was tempered. In weather news, rain is in the forecast for parts of eastern Illinois and southwestern Indiana, and parts of eastern Nebraska and western Iowa, according to the National Weather Service. Check out today's 3 Big Things for all the details.
