Futures regroup after rally fizzles

Weather keeps soybeans firm overnight. (video)

A tentative grain market rally ran out of gas Monday but is trying to regroup again this morning. A drier pattern for Argentina and southern Brazil over the next two weeks is the main story in the trade because demand isn’t providing much lift. Shipments of corn, soybeans and wheat are all trailing USDA forecasts, thanks to large world supplies.
