Soybeans are trying to avoid major follow-through selling after Friday’s break took futures to some key support levels. USDA may not make any major changes to its production forecast in Thursday’s update, and that’s part of the problem as rains return to dry areas of Brazil’s major growing region. Corn could get a bearish increase in production from USDA but the slow pace of harvest is helping support the cash market, keeping futures from falling off this morning. Wheat is also firm as basis levels strengthened last week.
