Aug 19: 
The major bullish factor for oils & fats is to be seen in the substantial reduction of world stocks by 4.2 Mn T in Jan/Aug 2016. Most of the reduction occured in palm oil...

Led by palm oil, most vegetable oils reversed the declining price trend during most of June and July. Palm oil was the price leader upward and skyrocketed by US$ 130-140 in the three weeks to Aug 18. Also lauric oils rebounded with palmkernel oil up 12% and coconut oil up 10%, while palm oil jumped by 21-23% in the 3-week period. Soya oil was also pulled higher with Argentine prices up US$ 90-100 and US export prices up US$ 110-120.



Aug 12: 
Substantially Higher US Exports of Soybeans & Corn Required in July/Dec 2016...

Plunging exports from South America will require a boost in US soybean exports to around 37.0 Mn T in July/Dec 2016, up 6.4 Mn from last year. Exports more than doubled from last year to about 2.6 Mn T in July. We expect exports in August to be at least 2.6 Mn T and in September at least 3.0 Mn T. However, we would not be surprised if actual exports this and next month. For July/Dec 2016 we estimate total US corn exports to reach at least 26.5 Mn T, up 7.0 Mn from a year ago.

Aug 05: 
Spectacular Growth of World Sunflowerseed Crushings & Trade in 2016/17...

We anticipate sharp increases in sunflowerseed crushings as well as in sunflower oil and meal supplies worldwide next season. At the moment only a very tentative estimate can be made and in today’s analysis we forecast world crushings to reach an all-time high of 40.9 Mn T in Oct/Sept 2016/17, with significant gains not only in the major producing countries but also in many importing countries where sunflowerseed will be processed partly as an alternative to rapeseed & canola. The global sunflowerseed trade volume is estimated to be boosted to a record 2.5 Mn T next season.

Jul 29: 
Depleted Vegetable Oil Stocks Will Be A Bullish Factor in Coming Months and in 2016/17...

In the season Oct/Sept 2015/16 stocks will be reduced much more sharply than expected hitherto. World production of 8 vegetable oils is declining by 1.3 Mn T, while consumption is increasing by 4.7 Mn T. This creates an unprecedented production shortfall. The decline in world stocks reaches alarming proportions...

Jul 22: 
World supplies of sunflowerseed and products will exceed expectations in 2016/17.....

World supplies of sunflowerseed and products will exceed expectations in 2016/17. We have made upward revisions in our crop estimates for the CIS countries, now expecting combined production to increase by 2.1 Mn T from last year. World production of sunflowerseed is now seen to rise to 46 Mn T in 2016/17, assuming normal weather from now on, up substantially by 3.7 Mn T from 2015/16 and by 4.9 Mn T from 2014/15. Crushings of sunflowerseed as well as supplies of sun oil and meal will have to be revised upward. We will publish our updated supply, demand and price forecasts for 2016/17 in the OIL WORLD MONTHLY of July 29.

Jul 15: 
Decline in Chinese Soybean Imports Considered Likely in 2016/17......

The next season Aug/July 2016/17 could be the first time in 15 years that Chinese imports of soybeans will be declining. There are still a lot of uncertainties but we currently do not rule out the possibility that imports drop to 80-82 Mn T in the next 12 months from an estimated 83.3 Mn T in 2015/16. The key factors contributing to this development are discussed in detail in the latest WEEKLY report. Still, Chinese soybean crushings will probably increase by about 5 Mn T from a year earlier in the new season.

Jul 08: 
Improved Rapeseed Crop Prospects in Parts of Europe But Demand- Rationing Still Inevitable in 2016/17...

Rapeseed production is likely to decline somewhat less severe than assumed hitherto in several EU member states and the CIS countries this year, slightly reducing the need for demand-rationing in the 2016/17 season. Our revised crop estimate for the European Union is 21.5 Mn T, about 0.2-0.3 Mn T higher than expected before, but still a three-year low and down 0.9 Mn T on the year...
