Market Comments

The big market mover in the past week was the USDA projections given at its Outlook Forum. USDA estimated 2015 corn acres at 89 million. Soybean acres were pegged at 83.5 million, which is about 4.5 million below numbers floating in the trade. Traders thought USDA's updated 2015 estimates were somewhat friendly, but that they were a lowball estimate of acreage in general. The market is also keeping a close eye on the U.S. dollar as it continues to trade higher against a basket of currencies. The downside of a stronger U.S. dollar is that it could lead to a slowdown in exports as importers look for cheaper sources of product. We are still in the price discovery process for 2015 crop insurance price elections. As of February 20, oil type sunflowers were at $16.90 and confections $26.50 per cwt. This represents an increase of 20 cents per cwt in the past two weeks. Current price elections for the major commodities are corn $4.16, soybeans $9.67 and spring wheat $5.88 per bushel. To follow direction for sunflower price elections watch the 2015 CBoT December soyoil contract during the month of February. Final price elections will be announced in early March.
