Soybeans race to another new high overnight

Jobs and export numbers could drive sentiment Friday. (Audio)

Soybeans remain the market on fire, with July futures posting double digit gains and another new high for the rally. Corn and wheat are lagging, however, as the market awaits fresh export data this morning. Weekly totals come out at 7:30 a.m. CDT, just as the government releases employment numbers for May, which could be a key deciding factor whether the Federal Reserve raises interest rates this summer.
