Market Comments

Markets are being helped to some extent by a sagging US dollar. A lower dollar makes US exports more competitive on the world market. There was also some buying on the CBoT based on South American logistics concerns but traders are more worried about the spread of US bird flu and impact it could have on US corn and soymeal feed use. Last week Oil World reported that the crush is increasingly driven by oil demand because of a combined decline of world production of rapeseed oil and sun oil, reduced supplies of olive oil and below average growth in world palm oil production. This has resulted in vegetable oils starting to stabilize as they are providing a larger share of the crush value due to the erosion in meal values. This is good news for high oil bearing crops such as sunflower. Also, according to Oil World another major factor to watch is rainfall in the palm and lauric oil producing countries. If the prevailing El Nino conditions prevail in the next one to three months it would create a major fundamental change on the supply side.
