Historically, September is a bad month for soybeans. This is about the time the harvest numbers begin to crystallize, shortly to be followed by the actual harvest. October, on the other hand, tends to be one of the strongest months of the calendar year for beans as the battle begins between Mother Nature and the farmers in the fields. Given the benign weather patterns we’ve been experiencing and expect to continue into the near future, we believe the September sell off could’ve gotten ahead of itself. Correspondingly, October’s strength may have arrived a week early.
