Yesterday soybean opened weak in India in the future exchange taking cues from MDEX.

Soybean opened weak in India in the future exchange taking cues from MDEX. Yesterday in CBOT, the soybean traded strongly after a three-day weekend in the US. USDA announced two large new crop bean export sales to China, the first was for 400,000 MT and the other was for 264,000 MT reporting the period of delivery to China 2020-21. Again soybean settles higher on China’s buying support. The weekly crop progress report showed 20% of new crop soybeans were dropping leaves as compared to the five-year avg. of 16%. USDA further lower the new crop soybean rating to 65% good/excellent which means the risk of lower yield. Funds are still bullish for soybeans and expecting soybean to trade higher in CBOT due to China continues buying and also with the expectation that the USDA may lower new crop soybeans yield and increased more export number of soybeans.

In India, the soybean prices traded weak by INR 250-500 PMT in the domestic markets.  In MP states new crop soybeans arrivals reported around 800-1000 MT with moisture condition 14%-25%. The soybean is trading at INR 38,240 against yesterday closed at INR 37,960 and today soybean prices traded low by 1.16% in the future exchange. Later in SH the soybean market recovered and traded high by 1.16% and closed +ve.
