Early Thursday, news the U.S. and China will meet caused an uptick in the grain complex. The buying continued throughout the day session. “The next few days are going to be critical for this market. The soybean market had a little bit of a setback Friday. We may kind of start to see the trade meander into more of a sideways pattern for about a week where prices would have a hard time getting above $9 and would be well supported at $8.75 until we get some more of the crop tour updates this week.” Stewart-Peterson Senior Market Advisor Naomi Blohm says the Pro Farmer crop tour will be the focus of markets moving into this next week.
