Soybean and grain futures were little changed overnight as investors weight the bullish dry weather Argentina against demand that's declined year-to-year. The ongoing dry weather in the South American country is keeping beans bid and corn underpinned, while the southern Plains drought is making it difficult to sell wheat. Export sales since the start of the marketing year on Sept. 1 for soybeans and corn are down 13% and 9%, respectively, while wheat sales since the start of its marketing year on June 1 are down 13% versus the same timeframe a year earlier. Beans were up about a penny, while corn and wheat were hovering around unchanged. Money managers are hoping for higher prices as they extended their bullish bets on corn and soybeans last week on the droughts. In weather news, blizzards and harsh winter weather are expected in much of the northern Plains and northern Midwest today. Up to 13 inches of snow is expected in parts of South Dakota with smaller amounts forecast in Minnesota and Wisconsin.
