Market Comments

Sunflower prices ended the week mixed at down 15 to up 30 cents for September delivery. New crop prices were lower losing 15 cents. The market is trading sideways to mostly lower on the CBoT. Some traders think oilseed and product prices will be on hold until more is known about the final US crop size, farmer selling pace and overall demand for the expected big crop. Talk of higher than expected harvest yields and a good two week harvest weather outlook have offered resistance to old and new crop prices. Weather forecasts for drier weather through September for much of the central United States should help harvesting which has begun in the south and south-central oilseed production areas. Overall oilseed crops largely remain in good to excellent condition based on weekly USDA crop reports. At the moment weather forecasts show few threats to maturing crops in Northern production areas and this has been a drag on prices. The ADM plant in Goodland, KS is offering 2015 new crop NuSun and High Oleic cash and Act of God (AOG) contracts. The plant will also offer daily cash prices for both crops. More 2015 new crop contracts are expected to roll out in the coming months.
