May Soybean Oil finished down 0.5 at 54.6, 0.75 off the high and 0.07 up from the low. May soybeans closed slightly lower on the session after some choppy to higher trade early. Aggressive long liquidation selling in corn and wheat failed to drag the soybean market much lower as traders see the need for soybeans to stay strong relative to corn. A higher trend overnight and ideas that the sell-off yesterday was a bit overdone helped to support the market early today. Ideas that soybeans need to continue to gain on corn in an effort to attract more acres for the coming season helped support. The expanding needs because of the lower South America crop has helped to support ideas that US usage, and therefore planted area, need to be higher. Near perfect weather for the start of the planting season for the Midwest next week has traders nervous that producers will push to plant as much corn as possible before shifting to soybean plantings and this has added to the positive tone."
