Market Mulls Soybean Imports

Market Mulls Soybean Imports

Trade tries to figure out prices will cope with tight soy stocks. (Audio)

Soybean prices are on a roller coaster ahead of Friday’s USDA report, one that’s been scary the last couple of days. While prices rebounded overnight, talk of imports of both whole soybeans from Brazil and meal from Argentina threw sand into the gears of the bull market. This volatility could be just the start of what may be a long process of rationing that lasts well into the summer.

Knorr discusses overnight market moves with Pam Jahnke, Wisconsin Farm Report, and you can listen using the audio tool on this page (just scroll down).
