Market Comments

Old crop sunflower prices continue to move higher. For the week old crop prices gained 10 to 15 cents while new crop was mixed at down 10 to up 35 cents at the crush plants. Sunflower prices are being supported by CBoT soyoil which continues to gain on soymeal with support coming from higher palm oil prices. Vegetable oil markets have trended higher on expectations for falling production of palm oil due to El Nino. Otherwise it is quiet in terms of market moving news. Some traders think prices have likely bottomed, and will do little until producers start planting the 2016 crop this spring. Next week USDA will release its latest Supply and Demand report. There is talk that USDA could raise US 2015/16 corn, soybean and wheat carryout. Exports are lagging due to slow demand and this could build stocks further. February is the critical development month for oilseeds in South America. South American weather is mostly favorable with rains due in Argentina. Talk of better Brazil weather could increase harvest pace there. The USDA S/D report, South American weather and crop progress will be the main market movers in the week ahead.
