Soybean futures ended the Friday session with strong losses in the last hour of trading. Pre-weekend short covering was met with news that China is planning to place tariffs on US beans. Front Month soy meal was down $4.30/ton, with soy oil a sharp 64 points lower. Early this morning President Trump decided to go ahead with the $50 billion in tariffs on Chinese goods. Just before close, China retaliated by releasing a statement that they are implementing 25% tariffs on $50 billion of US goods.

That was 9.6% larger than last year and 1.6% above April crush, but short of most estimates. Soy oil stocks at the end of May were shown at 1.856 billion pounds, well below most expectations and an 11.3% drop from April.Jul 18 Soybeans closed at $9.05 1/2, down 21 3/4 cents,Aug 18 Soybeans closed at $9.11 1/2, down 21 3/4 cents,Sep 18 Soybeans closed at $9.18 1/4, down 21 1/2 cents,Jan 19 Soybeans closed at $9.39 1/4, down 19 cents,Jul 18 Soybean Meal closed at $338.90, down $4.30,Jul 18 Soybean Oil closed at $29.50, down $0.64
