CBOT soybeans drop from 6-1/2-year high on profit taking

CHICAGO, Jan 13 (Reuters) - U.S. soybean futures fell on Wednesday on a round of profit taking after hitting their highest in 6-1/2 years during the overnight trading session. * Weakness in the cash market added pressure to soybean futures. * Declines were kept in check by strong export prospects and tight global supplies. * Soymeal and soyoil futures also fell after rising in the overnight trading session. * Private exporters reported the sale of 464,300 tonnes of soybeans to unknown destinations, the U.S. Agriculture Department said on Wednesday morning. It was the largest daily soybean sale since June. * Analysts were expecting a USDA report on Thursday to show that weekly export sales of soybeans were in a range between 400,000 and 1.2 million tonnes. A week ago, soybean export sales totaled just 116,764 tonnes.
