CBOT floor brokers reported that funds bought 2,400 contracts of Wheat, 4,600 contracts of Corn and 4,100 contracts of Soybean.
The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) Tuesday released its September crop report, which was deemed by the market Bearish, as it adjusted the US Corn and Soybean yields upwards.
The USDA estimates pressured the CBOT futures, with both Corn and Soybean suffering 1% losses.
Wednesday, technical buying boosted the their prices and the Soybean market got additional support from trade talk that China booked more US Soybean for late October or November, taking advantage of the relatively low prices.
The USDA announced Wednesday that private exporters reported new Soybean sales of 167,370 tonnes for delivery to Mexico. All the factors pushed the Soybean prices higher and ended 4-days of running slides.
