O Brazilian soybean market had a calm Monday (1st). Prices showed volatility and closed mixed.

There was some aggressiveness on the part of the trading companies, looking for available soybeans, but the producers showed no interest.

There were occasional deals recorded on the day. Despite favorable price moments, producers remained withdrawn, wanting higher prices. Margins are tight, so producers hold on, even if prices rise, waiting for better quotes.
