Soybean futures move lower after small export number

Corn about unchanged as exports top forecasts (audio)

Soybean futures turned lower near midday on Monday after USDA reported weekly export inspections of 7.5 million bushels. While China was the largest destination for soybeans in that report, the quantity to China was down from previous reports. Corn inspections of 41.5 million were up from a week ago and better than expected. Wheat inspections of 11.7 million bushels were within forecasts.
