Soybeans are posting strong gains on follow through buying early Monday morning, amid mounting concerns about weather delays for planting. Both November soybeans and December corn posted chart breakouts last week, moving above downtrends in place since last fall. The moves are supporting old crop prices, but farmers with inventory left must take care not to get caught in a volatile basis environment.
