Soybean Oil Leads Soybeans Higher; Corn Keeps Rally Going as Dollar Plunges
As world and U.S. financial markets took on a much more optimistic tone
Tuesday, corn and soy markets moved higher and wheat finished mostly mixed to
lower, rebuffing early strength. Energy, metal, and equity markets rallied
sharply for the second straight day and the U.S. Dollar Index plummeted just
five days after making a new contract high. Ideas of a more dovish policy in
the future from the Federal Reserve fueled the outside advance.
