Closing Market Report- 1/27/22- Soybeans Show Some Strength, Wheat Weakness Seen Again


Spot March and new-crop November soybean futures each scored new contract highs Thursday with March rising to the highest level since August 2021. Soybean oil also scored a new high, helped by the crude oil market, which had eclipsed $88 per barrel at one point Thursday before fading back. Wheat futures closed sharply lower again on a slight easing of the Russia-Ukraine conflict and beneficial moisture in the Southern Plains. We also saw a surging US Dollar Index on Thursday. Hogs found selling pressure despite solid weekly export sales and cattle futures chopped sideways on the day.
