While most outside markets are on the upswing today, grain futures couldn’t hold higher at open Sunday night and are drifting lower this morning. Soybeans tried to rally through resistance on concerns about dry weather in South America but reversed lower after the market in China sold off when traders returned from a week-long holiday. USDA offices close today for Columbus day, so regular reports including Crop Progress are delayed until Tuesday. Wet conditions could keep harvest sluggish this week while the market gets ready for Thursday’s updated crop estimates from USDA.
