The China bought 197,000 metric ton of new crop soybean, and 202,000 metric ton were sold to unknown by US exporters. From the weekly Export Sales report 570,100 metric ton of old crop soybean were booked. China purchased 73.8% of the total on the week. New crop purchases were also above expectations with 2.84 million metric ton. China booked 1.71 million metric ton and 872,500 metric ton were sold to unknown.But the continuous China buying for U.S. soybean and depleting stocks in Brazil is supporting the soybean prices and due to soybean high shortage the Brazil Govt lowers Bio diesel blend mandates for Sep Oct on soybean oil high shortage.
