While traders in the U.S. get ready for Wednesday’s monthly production, supply and demand reports from USDA, markets aren’t standing still overseas, giving a lift to futures overnight. In addition to a big rally in Chinese soybeans, wheat gained in Europe and Australia due to dry conditions. Basis in the cash market remains weak for corn and soybeans but at least beat the roll from September to December thanks to good demand from both processors and exporters.
