Soybeans make new highs overnight

Fallout from USDA continues as traders wonder about weather. (Audio)

Grain markets are mixed in overnight trading. While soybeans moved to new highs for 2016 on the strength of USDA’s bullish acreage estimate last week, corn continues to suffer after the government forecast a 6% surge in seedings. Wheat prices are mixed, as traders wait for the first crop ratings of the season and digest weather reports that show dry conditions on the Plains ending in the second half of April.
