Market Comments

Sunflower harvest is largely finished up for the 2022 growing season across the country and remains mostly ahead of historical benchmarks as the season ends. In the past week nearby prices ended the week on the downside as sunflower prices followed the soyoil selloff on the Chicago Board of Trade. CBoT soyoil prices slumped lower after Ukraine released a significant amount of sunflower oil for export earlier in the week. Nearby NuSun ended $1.05-$1.75 lower with high oleic down 55 cents to $1.50 per cwt. 2023 new crop was down 25 cents to unchanged for the week. In spite of the losses this week prices remain stronger than normal for this time of the year at the crush plants. With the 2022 U.S. harvest in the books, traders will increasingly look to South America for price signals in the coming months. Production in Brazil and Argentina is expected to be record large this growing season. However, drought conditions are present in some areas and could affect production. Given the potential of record breaking South American soybean production, this bears watching as international trade would assume much of the impact and could affect new crop oilseed prices. Overall price direction will be determined by export demand news and South American oilseed production prospects in the near term. USDA will release its supply and demand report next week. Traders are anticipating that any significant changes to production, stocks and usage will come in the January report.
