"-July Soybeans finished down 16 3/4 at 1365 1/2, 17 1/4 off the high and 14 1/2 up from the low. November Soybeans closed down 23 at 1259 1/4. This was 8 up from the low and 22 3/4 off the high.  July Soybean Oil finished down 1.44 at 49.02, 1.53 off the high and 0.47 up from the low. July soybeans pushed sharply lower on the session as talk of the hefty net long position of fund traders in soybeans and an aggressive long liquidation selling trend helped to pressure. Futures fell as much as 31 1/4 cents this morning as the outlook for some rains next week along with deteriorating economic views on the global economy helped to spark increased fund trader long liquidation selling. A jump in the US dollar, a sharp break in gold and energy markets and a collapse in equity markets helped to pressure. The market saw a near 15 cent recovery bounce off of the early lows into the mid-session as some strength in corn and only minor losses for meal helped to slow the aggressive selling from fund traders. Palm oil was down 2.9% overnight and is already at a significant discount to soybean oil on the world market so this helped drive soybean oil sharply lower today with July down to the lowest level since October of 2010. For weekly export sales in the morning, traders see soybean sales near 1.15 million tonnes."
