Market Comments

Weather remains the main trading feature. As long as the weather remains favorable and the forecasts continue to avoid too much in the way of heat and keep some rain in the forecast crop prices will be under pressure on the CBoT. August to early September is the critical time frame for oilseeds. Growing conditions throughout the Midwest continue to be very positive for oilseed development. Soybean oil has been lower as the concerns about El Niño are fading and this will contain the upside in palm oil prices. This along with potentially record US soybean production will keep oil values under pressure. These factors are having an impact on high oil bearing seed prices such as sunflower as well. In addition, overall conditions of global oilseed crops continue to be bearish news for the market. This is leading buyers to anxiously watch crop production prospects before making longer term purchases. Oilseed prices are trending in the direction that the market believes that supplies will be fully adequate until the harvest of the new crop begins in six or seven weeks. Without a weather threat or significant demand news, prices will probably grind lower in the weeks ahead.
