Weekly export sales....neutral.  Everyone wait for the 8 a.m. announcements.

Soybean market was a expecting a Chinese purchase closer to 5,000,000 MT’s (rather than 500,000 MT’s).  Traders will continue to watch for additional sales for soybean futures to push prices through strong nearby resistance levels.  It would have been nice to see yesterday’s market at least 20-30 cents higher on this news, but we didn’t get it.

The U.S. House & Senate overwhelmingly passed the latest farm bill.  Now it will be submitted to President Trump for him to sign into law without tightening the criteria to receive food stamps.  More than 40 million Americans (12% of the U.S. population) depend on the SNAP food stamps program each year.

Since November 1st when we first considered the developing chart formation in soybeans, SH19 beans have rallied near 83 cents.
