Market Comments

Thoughts of large global oilseed supplies and not enough demand are pressuring oilseed prices. Also, concern about the Chinese economy and potential for a currency war in emerging markets has weighed on commodity prices. CBoT soybean contracts dipped below $9.00 for the first time since 2009. Some traders think this suggests that prices could possibly slide to a range of $8.50-$8.75 in the weeks ahead. USDA's report from earlier this month pegged the US soybean crop much higher than most trade analysts thought. There are doubts from many that the forecast is on the money but until another report is released next month this is what the market is trading on. China's stock market continues to tumble. The economic troubles there has raised worries the Chinese government may lower the Yuan some more. In last week's devaluation, the Yuan dropped about 3% against the dollar. The devaluation is raising trader concerns about Chinese demand for oilseeds this fall and into 2016. Weather and crop conditions will be the main traded features in the near term. Oilseeds are in the most important reproductive time frame between now and the first week of September. Weather forecasts for the Midwest bear watching as they have changed with hot, dry weather now in the 6- to 10-day outlook, particularly in the western belt.
