Higher markets led by soybeans but buying enthusiasm remains lackluster.

Corn and soybeans scoring an outside reversal (daily chart); higher markets in store?

USDA announced the sale of 132 kmt of US beans to China for 2015/16 crop year.

Monsoon rains delayed in Brazil; dry conditions raising temps to 107 F in Mato Grosso.

Dry conditions to continue next week while wet weather dominates southern Brazil.

Heavy and much-needed rainfall still forecasted for southern Plains Wed-Friday.

Low water levels on the MS River forced dredging operations near Quincy; to reopen Oct 21.

March bean low so far this year was scored on Oct 2nd @ 8.765

Seasonal tendencies are for beans to rally at the start of harvest and through December

Interesting to know the 10-yr average rally (SH) from the Oct low to winter high is $2.29.
