The grain markets are calming down after seeing big gains in the green on Friday.

USDA announced a flash sale of 204,000 metric tons of soybeans on Friday. It follows reports the country bought at least 10 cargoes of U.S. beans.

That's after a Chinese state news agency said Beijing would exempt U.S. soybeans and pork from additional tariffs ahead of the next round of trade negotiations. President Trump last week postponed an increase in tariffs on Chinese imports.
