Soybeans: As of 7:45- 3 higher

Solid export sales of 1.53mmt and the announcement of another 101tmt to China and 773.4 tmt to unknown keep this market firm in the a.m. before settling lower for the day. For the morning we look to have some follow through strength for that business keeping us within yesterdays range. Informa at 47bpa with 3.924 billion bu’s of production. Stats Canada released estimated canola at 2.3 mmt vs. ave. trade estimate of 1.4.
