CHICAGO, April 2 (Xinhua) -- Chicago Board of Trade (CBOT) soybean futures rose for second consecutive session on Tuesday, as investors turned to technical buying ahead of a new round of U.S.-China trade talks.
China and the United States are expected to hold the ninth round of high-level economic and trade talks in Washington this week.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) on Monday confirmed 828,000 metric tons of soybeans by private exporters for delivery to China during the 2018/19 marketing year.
