Market Comments

It was another tough week for all commodities as gains made in July continue to evaporate. Sunflower prices at the crush plants have followed the action on the CBoT to some degree but have not sustained the same losses as other oilseeds. Birdfood prices have picked up the past few weeks as plants try to purchase the last remaining old crop stocks and this is supporting seed values. August and September are historically strong months for birdfood prices as plants gear up for the winter sales season. Traders continue to watch economic events unfold in China. The recent downturn in China's stock market is raising concerns about their demand for oilseeds this fall and into 2016. Adding further downward price pressure were reports that farmers in Brazil and Argentina have slowed new crop sales, thus creating more competition for US exports this fall. In the week ahead, weather and crop conditions will be the main traded features as oilseeds are in the most important reproductive time frame between now and the first week of September. Traders are viewing weather forecasts in key soybean production states as a non-threat at this time.
