The tariff deadline between China and the US is June 15th. Will it happen? Longs in the soy complex are trading as if it will happen and they are going to make sure theyre not long. If it doesnt happen you can be sure prices will boomerang back higher. At this point in time Im not sure anything further needs to be said.

The interior cash soybean market reads mixed. River locations are seen to be steady to better. Elevators are quiet as they stay steady. Processors continue to show the best bids out there but they are not setting the world on fire. The Gulf appears to have softened from recent attempts to strengthen. Soybean spreads continue to widen out from a lack of market making business. Interior offers to sell cash meal continue to look for buyers. The export market is now easing as well. Meal spreads ran steady to fractionally softer out to December. July through Dec ran stronger vs. the Jan forward.

The 14-day RSI for July soybeans is 23.32, for November 25.36. The same RSI for July meal is 25.40, for December 29.14. Daily momentum indicators show an even greater degree of oversold. We have taken a year old rally in old crop soybeans and have completely erased it. Thank you very much to politics in the marketplace. From a time frame I would like to think there is not a lot left on the downside. Price wise - who knows. Unfortunately I learned a long time ago markets will go higher vs. what we think reasonable just like markets will go lower vs. what we think reasonable (is this one of those times?)
