Markets ease despite tariff hopes

Financial markets set to close to honor Bush. (audio)

Grain markets drifted lower overnight despite reports that China may start buying soybeans again following trade talks at the G20 summit between President Trump and President Xi. Uncertainty about their commitment sent stocks reeling yesterday. Financial markets and federal government offices are closed today to honor President George H. W. Bush, delaying market reports.
