Market Comments

Depressed world vegetable oil values continue to pressure nearby and new crop sunflower prices. An expected surge in Southeast Asian palm oil output and the lack of El Nino has put traders into a mindset that there could be a global glut of vegetable oil next marketing year. This bearish tone has been reflected in falling CBoT soyoil values the past two weeks. The bearishness of the market is further impacted by thoughts that the 2014 US oilseed crop will likely get bigger, and supplies still look burdensome. Sunflower prices at crush and birdfood plants are trending in the same direction as the oil market. However the majority of the US sunflower crop is far from being made and will need a considerable amount of additional heat units to finish. The threat of an early freeze could jolt the market and give seed prices some upward momentum. Traders still believe that there is potential to have a very large world oilseed crop so prices will be unpredictable in the weeks ahead until the market is more comfortable with production figures. Weather conditions in the key soybean production states and the weekly USDA crop progress report will be the main market movers.
