Market Comments

Sunflower prices at the crush plants rallied this week as vegetable oil prices surged. Old crop seed prices gained 70-80 cents with 2015 new crop adding 60-80 cents. A market forecast of higher palm oil and sun oil prices coupled with talk that the US may approve biodiesel blend credits after the Nov 4 election allowed oils to rally this week. Palm is at around a three month high and had its biggest weekly gain since last November. Informa will release their estimate of US 2014 corn and soybean production as of Nov 1 next Tuesday morning. USDA will release its next report on November 10. Most traders still look for USDA to raise US 2014 corn and soybean crops and this should increase US corn carryout. Higher demand could offset a higher US soybean crop. USDA is also expected to raise world corn, soybean and wheat 2014/15 end stocks. The US dollar hit a three-week high on Thursday against a basket of currencies as the Federal Reserve ended its stimulus program. A stronger dollar could lead to a slowdown in exports and will direct importers to look for cheaper sources thus pressuring nearby prices.
