Overseas markets point to soft open Monday. (Audio)

It’s a 24/7 world, so even though U.S. markets remain closed until 8:30 a.m. CT, exchanges in Asia and Europe were setting what appears to be a lower trend for the oilseed complex today. Bid/Ask spreads posted already in on the U.S. screen also suggest a weaker open today, which could take November futures below chart support around $11.33. Corn is also leaning to the downside, but wheat may find support from rain harvest weather stretching from France to Russia.

Farm Futures Senior Editor Bryce Knorr talks about the markets with Mick Kjar, Valley News Live TV, Fargo.
