Market Comments

Old and new crop sunflower prices lost some ground in the past week as most oilseed market news as been bearish. Expectations for a big 2015 US soybean crop coupled with rising carryout stocks outlook have weighed on CBoT prices. Some private analyst groups estimate that the final US 2015 soybean planted acres could be closer to 87.0 million versus USDA estimate of 84.6 and 83.7 last year. This could add as much as 130 million bushels to the US 2015/16 carryout that is already forecasted at 500 million bushels. Higher carryout would suggest lower new crop soybean prices. Adding further pressure has been rising estimates of South American production and disappointing US export sales. Soybean production estimates out of both Argentina and Brazil continue to edge higher. US export sales have slowed down as buyers turn to cheaper South American sources to satisfy needs. Excellent planting progress and overall good weather is limiting buying interest from traders. Unless weather turns ugly and planting slows down it will be difficult for markets to rally in the near term.
