Market Comments
CBoT soyoil has been supported by higher palm oil prices. Palm oil values have increased due to stronger demand from key buyers such as India, Pakistan and China. Recent purchases coupled with reduced export supplies has narrowed the palm oil price discount to soyoil considerably. Fundamentally world export supplies of soyoil are tight and this is giving additional support to CBoT soyoil contracts. In contrast to the oil situation, meal stocks are ample and this is putting downward price on meal prices. Global soymeal demand so far has been disappointing. Traders are concerned the US soybean crush could slow due to slower than expected soymeal demand.  This is allowing soyoil to gain on soymeal. This is positive news for sunflower prices when oil is the market leader. Harvest of the US sunflower crop has just gotten started.  Initial yield reports are positive and quality is generally very good.  Sunflower harvest started sooner this year as many acres were desiccated. Most of the US crop is rated in the good to excellent categories so yields and quality are expected to be above average. Depending on the size of 2016 crop, seed prices could drift lower as harvest deliveries arrive at plants and farmers pick up the selling pace in the next couple of months. After the initial harvest delivery period prices will follow demand news.
