Market Comments

Overall it was a rough week for all commodities as gains made earlier this month evaporated. Improving weather in the Midwest, slow new crop demand versus last year due to stronger US dollar, and trade thoughts of increased crop ratings on Monday were the main factors in this week's downtrend in prices. Also a general stabilization of world weather led to a wide-ranging slide in world commodity prices adding further pressure. Oilseeds are moving into their most important reproductive time frame between now and the first week of September with what appears to be non-threatening weather. Traders are also keeping an eye on China and Europe as disappointing economic data has raised concerns about their demand for world commodities. For the most part sunflower prices at the crush plants have followed the action on the CBoT. Birdfood prices have picked up the past few weeks as plants try to purchase the last remaining old crop stocks. August and September are historically strong months for birdfood prices as plants gear up for the winter sales season. Weather forecasts and US dollar movement will likely determine price direction in the week ahead.
