CBOT soybeans close higher; soyoil hits highest in nearly four months

CHICAGO, Oct 19 (Reuters) - U.S. soybean futures ended firm on Wednesday after fluctuating between positive and negative territory during the session. * Good demand on the export market provided support while the ongoing U.S. harvest added pressure. * Soyoil futures rose for the fifth time in the last six sessions, hitting their highest since June 22 on spillover strength from the crude oil market and gains in global vegetable oil prices. * The benchmark Chicago Board of Trade November soybean futures contract settled up 1/2 cent at $13.72-1/2 a bushel. * The contract faced resistance at its 10-day moving average. * CBOT December soymeal was down 10 cents at $401.70 a ton. * CBOT December soyoil gained 1.90 cents to 70.64 cents per lb. * Analysts were expecting a U.S. Agriculture Department report on Thursday morning to show that export sales of soybeans were in a range between 1.7 million and 2.8 million tonnes in the week ended Oct. 13. The low end of the range was more than double the prior week's total of 724,405 tonnes. * Soymeal export sales were forecast between 150,000 and 600,000 tonnes and soyoil export sales between zero and 30,000 tonnes.
