Market Comments

It was another volatile week of trading on the CBoT. A rally in CBoT soyoil contracts helped sunflower prices erase heavier losses and end the week mixed at down 10 to up 15 cents at the crush plants. Soyoil rallied on an increase in crude petroleum oil prices and fund buying. Trading was volatile based on continuing uncertainty over China's economic situation and impact it could have on their import demand this fall and early 2016. USDA's report from earlier this month pegged the US soybean crop much higher than most trade analysts thought. Recently crop scout reports hint that the US soybean crop could be closer to USDA August guess than thought earlier. The next USDA supply and demand report released in September could have a big impact on prices going forward. Birdfood prices remain strong as plants try to purchase the last remaining old crop stocks. August and September are historically strong months for birdfood prices as plants gear up for the winter sales season. Weather reports, crop progress and conditions, along with demand news will be the main market movers.
