According to DTN, the average US cash price for soybeans on Monday was $9.32 3/4, 46 cents lower than the same day in 2017. That would put the average soybean basis at -69 cents, 6 1/2 cents stronger than last year. Analysts are expecting Thursday’s NOPA report to show that 165.511 mbu of soybeans were crushed during January. That would be 3.04% larger than the same time last year, and the second largest behind December 2017.
