Market Comments


Old Crop High Oleic bids are offered at Cargill in Fargo and ADM Goodland.

The markets have been tough for most crops since the first of this month. Old and new crop sunflower prices have mainly traded sideways following CBoT soyoil values to some degree but at a distance. Traders continue to take weather risk out of the market. CBoT soybean values have been trimmed by almost $2.00 bushel in the past three weeks. Soybean prices have been impacted by favorable Midwest weather conditions and a possible decline in Chinese imports. With 71% of the US soybean crop rated in good to excellent condition coupled with favorable weather, the market is backing off the weather premium that was put in place this spring. Forecasts into August remain cooler and wetter, with the new NOAA 30-day forecast showing little threat to what looks like a good crop so far. According to Oil World, China’s soybean imports may fall for the first time in 15 years next season as the government sells from carryover stocks and domestic production climbs. The government will reportedly sell about 4.3 million tons from stocks accumulated in the past few years. This has resulted in sluggish forward buying for arrival this fall. It’s that time of year when we are entering the critical timeframe for oilseeds so the market will continue to trade weather and demand news in the week ahead.

Crushers are still offering 2016 new crop Act of God (AOG) NuSun and high oleic sunflower contracts. Something else to keep in mind is oil premiums that are paid on sunflower. Oil premiums are offered at the crush plants on oil content above 40% at a rate of 2% price premium for each 1% of oil above 40%.
