Soybean futures were sharply higher on the day, as most contracts closed 3 to 4 cents off of their session highs. Strong price support came from the soybean meal and soybean oil markets; with their respective front month contracts up $15.70 and 22 cents on the day.The domestic crushers need beans to make meal for export and the export market for whole beans has been strong at this price level too.That is creating competition for the beans that are moving.
