Soybeans were modestly lower on fund and technical selling, after another up and down day. Nothing’s official, but it looks like trade talks between the U.S. and China won’t happen this month. No date for the resumption of discussions has been announced and several potential roadblocks, including intellectual property concerns, remain. China was the big weekly buyer for beans, but totals have fallen short of expectations. Still, that didn’t include the sales announced this Monday and last Friday.
