Market Comments

New crop confection sunflower contracts are starting to roil out. Red River Commodities are offering 2015 confections at Fargo are at $25 per cwt. At the RRC High Plains locations, confections are at a $29/$17 split in Colby, KS and $26/$17 split in Lubbock TX. At the crush plants old crop seed prices lost 5 to 10 cents per cwt. 2015 new crop was down 10 cents per cwt. Good South American weather is offering resistance to soybeans on the CBoT. Most traders feel bullish soybean news may be behind us with good world 2015 supplies ahead. Brazil's crop is nearly planted. Last week the Brazilian government predicted a huge harvest of 95.8 million metric tons (MMT) in 2015, while another oilseed analyst there kept its estimate at 91 MMT. USDA estimated the Brazil soybean crop at 94 MMT and the Argentine soybean crop at 55 MMT; both figures are unchanged from November. There was also talk in the market that demand for soybean will eventually shift to South America. This offered some price resistance. The US dollar continues to trade higher against a basket of currencies. The market anticipates when Republicans take over Congress in 2015 they will create a more pro-business climate. The downside of a stronger US dollar is that it could lead to a slowdown in exports as importers look for cheaper sources of product.
