"-July Soybeans finished up 7 1/2 at 1383 1/2, 3 off the high and 12 up from the low. November Soybeans closed up 13 1/4 at 1289 1/2. This was 20 3/4 up from the low and 1/2 off the high. July Soymeal closed down 1.3 at 409.5. This was 1.9 up from the low and 2.8 off the high. July Soybean Oil finished up 0.78 at 50.2, 0.01 off the high and 1 up from the low. July soybeans traded moderately higher on the day into the mid-session but macro economic concerns for the weekend, weakness in the stock market and a turn from lower to higher for the US dollar helped to spark a set-back from the highs. Traders are a bit uncomfortable believing that rains late next week will completely ease dryness concerns. While some rain will ease crusting issues and will alleviate top soil deficiencies in most areas, a return to warmer and drier weather into early June is seen as a strong possibility at this point and any confirmation of a ridging pattern beyond next week on the weather maps Monday night could spark more buying next week. This has helped to support the market today but the upside is limited by fears that actual rain amounts next week will be more than expected. Cash basis levels are improving along the river system on talk of firm export demand and basis in Iowa was up as processor margins are favorable. This strong demand trend for exports and for crush has added to the positive tone today. Open interest was down 1,713 contracts yesterday. Outside market forces are slightly positive but there are still significant macro economic fears for the long weekend."
