Market Comments


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

Old crop sunflower prices continue to trade about $1.00 per cwt. higher than the 60 day moving average at the North Dakota crush plants. New crop prices were trimmed this week following the price action on the CBoT. This week’s Pro Farmer crop tour suggested a little higher US soybean yield and production than the USDA August estimate. This has some in the trade raising their estimate of the US soybean crop. Some industry analysts think that the current USDA soybean crop rating could suggest that the final US soybean yield could be as much as 10 percent above trend yields. This would add about 250 million bushels to the final US crop. The talk of a bigger US soybean crop offered resistance to prices and triggered liquidation in beans and products on the CBoT. There is some chatter that China may be slowing new buying due to large imports and a drop in margins. There was also talk that both Brazil and Argentina farmers may have increased cash selling. Talk that Argentina may delay the lowering of the soybean export tax until next spring may have triggered some farmer selling. It looks as if weather won’t be much of a factor in next week’s trading as the weather outlook calls for normal to above temps and normal rains.

Crushers are still offering 2016 new crop Act of God (AOG) NuSun and high oleic sunflower contracts.
