Market Comments


Old Crop High Oleic bids are offered at Cargill in Fargo and ADM Goodland.

Buyers are anxiously watching crop production prospects before making longer term purchases. August-September is the critical timeframe for sunflowers. Currently the majority of the US sunflower crop is rated in good to excellent condition and growing conditions in most of the growing region has been favorable for development. CBoT price action has been volatile in the past three weeks, but sunflower prices at the crush plants have remained relatively firm at unchanged to up 15 cents during this time. In most years this would be disappointing but with the wild price swings and resulting huge losses that other crops have experienced during this same timeframe it is positive for sunflower prices going forward. Something else to keep in mind is oil premiums that are paid on sunflower. Oil premiums are offered at the crush plants on oil content above 40% at a rate of 2% price premium for each 1% of oil above 40%. The market will continue to trade weather in the week ahead with traders adding or backing off the weather premium depending on the latest weather forecast.  CBoT traders are also keeping track of Chinese sales from their reserve soybean stocks. Concerns continue to circulate that China may import fewer soybeans than expected this year as it produces more plus sells supplies from its domestic reserves.

Crushers are still offering 2016 new crop Act of God (AOG) NuSun and high oleic sunflower contracts.
