The selling comes amid heightened trade tensions between the United States and China. One individual sold 221,000 shares valued at $3.9 million and another sold 132,200 shares worth $2.3 million of the fund, which tracks 10 different agriculture futures. The sales came after China's Ministry of Commerce reportedly told companies Monday to import more soybeans, among other goods, from other countries not named the U.S., according to Bloomberg.
