Corn, soybeans lower after recent gains: Podcast

Market weakness persists despite strong export sales.

Corn and soybean futures were lower near midday Thursday as they retreated from recent gains. The declines came despite better-than-expected weekly export sales for corn and soybeans. The lower soybean oil market also may be weighing on soybeans.

The strong dollar may have played a role in the selling, as the currency rose to a seven-month high Thursday after Europe’s Central Bank hinted that it may introduce another economic stimulus plan.
