Soybeans bent but not broken

Soybeans bent but not broken

Soybeans took a punch on Thursday but were able to bounce back from double digit losses. That same selling is underway again this morning, but soybeans so far are holding to an inside day, keeping their short-term uptrend in place. Cautious outside markets may be adding to the negative tone in the grain complex so far, and traders can’t decide if strong demand will be enough to keep supplies from building with farmers ready to harvest record crops.
