Prices for soybeans and soybean oil decline ahead of USDA report

Back to all news

soybean Futures in Chicago fell from the beginning of the week by 2.7% to 312 $/t under pressure capacity rate of harvest and an increase in the forecast of soybean crop in the United States. Prices for soybeans continue to fluctuate because of the uncertainty with exports to China, so last month they dropped to $300/t and up to $320/t, and within a month lost 1.6%.

Traders hold the market in anticipation of lower prices after the publication of the next USDA report, where they hope to see another increase in production and carryover of soybeans in the United States.

According to the Wall Street Journal, which is considered the average value of the estimates of various analytical agencies, the forecast of soybean production in the United States will grow to 128.8 million tons, compared to 127.7 million tonnes in the September report and 119.5 million tonnes last year. In this evaluation soybean yields will increase to 3.59 t/ha against 3,55 t/ha in the previous report, and 3.3 t/ha in 2017.

the Demand for Ukrainian soy is still low due to low activity of traders, and the workload of the elevators maize and sunflower almost impossible to take soy, which it is not clear who and when will buy. Processors continue to purchase in terms of delivery to the plant and offer prices at the level 10500-10650 UAH/t, while preference is given to soybean with high protein content.
