Futures turn around after heavy deliveries

Dollar weakens again overnight giving a lift to commodities. (Audio)

Soybean futures came under pressure Thursday night after heavier than expected deliveries against May futures on first notice day, with a lot of wheat put out in Ohio and Kansas too. But buying came back into the market around 5 a.m. CDT helping corn and wheat to modest gains and trimming losses in soybeans. After another wet weekend warmer and drier weather is in store for growers next week.
