Market Comments

Oil values took a beating after the ruling by EPA to allow US imports of Argentine biodiesel under the Renewable Fuel Standards was announced. This led speculators to abandon oil and sell oil contracts on the CBoT. US prices are not high enough yet for this to work but it does open the door for Argentine imports if prices change. CBoT soybean contracts trended lower following more news of China's cancelling of some scheduled export sales. China's recent cancellations have traders wondering if demand will shift to South America sooner than usual. Sunflower prices at the crush plants followed the soy complex lower, mainly based on weakness in CBoT soyoil values. The birdfood market continues to offer a premium to the crush plant prices. Traders are mainly focusing on South American weather and crop production prospects. Weather continues to remain mostly favorable in Brazil and Argentina. On the positive side, the world oilseed market is expected to be more oil driven in 2015 rather than meal. Oil stocks are tighter than a year ago and there are some concerns for palm oil production this year. This scenario looks promising for high oil content seeds such as sunflower.
