Jack Scoville, The PRICE Futures Group vice-president, says that the market is reacting to bullish fundamental news.
“Informa, the private analyst firm, is talking less soybean area in Missouri. Export sales of 240,000 new crop soybeans to unknown, and just ideas of slow development and more risk for crops has created buying,” Scoville says.
Scoville adds, “It’s kind of an unsubstantiated rally to me. But, there are more rains in the forecast and the forecast seems to be getting wetter for the next week or so. All of that might be enough reason to go higher.”
Shorts not really covering, if they have been placed this week, he says.
“So, I am not sure how far this can go, my idea is that we made a high last week, maybe a seasonal high, but not looking super cool right now.”

Big soybean sale? This on the heels of the Chinese news of their collapsing stock market and the much lower soybean market. Is anyone surprised?
Well, I guess we need to stand for something.......or fall for anything.
