Stunning Growth of Soybean Exports May Slow Down
in April/Sept 2014...
The extremely large increase of soybean exports in the first half of this season contrasted
with the insufficient growth of crushings in the soybean producing countries. Soybean
crushings in the US, Argentina and Brazil recovered by only around 3 Mn T from the low
year-ago level to roughly 54.8 Mn T in Oct/March 2013/14. This is less than what they had
processed in the comparable period six years ago (mainly due to Argentina), whereas their
combined soybean exports rocketed by 60% in that period...

US Crop Prospects Not Yet Affecting Price-Making...
The market showed only a muted reaction to the
prospective record US soybean acreage in 2014
announced by USDA on March 31 with November
futures even appreciating to US-$ 12.03½ on April 3.
The large planting intentions did not come unexpected
and therefore probably failed to have an immediate
However, prospects of a large US soybean crop
bear the potential of pressuring prices in coming
months, taking also into account that soybean stocks in
South America will still be relatively large when the next
US crop becomes available...

Olive oil: Spain is increasing its export share on the global market this season....
Olive oil: Spain is increasing its export share on the global market this season, taking advantage of reduced production and export supplies of Tunisia, Greece, Turkey and other olive oil producers.
This season Spain is accounting for more than 50% of world production. It is even possible that the actual pressed olive oil production exceeds the officially reported 1.60 Mn T, which is already a record. In the OIL WORLD WEEKLY provide details of our updated survey on world production, exports, imports, consumption, stocks and prices. ..

OIL WORLD WEEKLY of 14 March 2014
Vegetable oil prices appreciating. Market participants have become alerted about the looming tightness in world palm oil supplies..
This concern is mainly caused by the drought and heatwave which has prevailed in the most recent 6-7 consecutive weeks until March 6 in many important palm oil growing areas of the Peninsula in Malaysia as well as in several parts of Indonesia and Thailand. The situation will become very critical if it stays dry for another 2-3 weeks. Oil palms are already showing drought stress. However, the impacts on palm oil production will be seen only with time lags
Continued dryness would create a bullish price scenario for oils & fats considering the importance of palm oil and palmkernel oil which recently accounted for 33% of world production and 63% of world exports of all 17 oils & fats, as pointed out by Thomas Mielke in his presentation at the Palm Oil Outlook Conference in Kuala Lumpur on March 5.

Palm Oil Outlook: Very Little Rainfall in Parts of Malaysia,
Thailand and Indonesia...
The dryness clearly intensified during February,
according to several private reports. Water-rationing
has started in parts of Malaysia.
If the dryness persists for another 2-3 weeks, stress
on oil palms will intensify. But it should be considered
that time lags are involved. This will start to show up in
reduced production towards the end of 2014...

Decimated Palm Oil Export Supplies Being Felt in the Market...
Imports of the 8 oils still exceeded the year-ago
levels in Oct/Dec 2013 in the European Union, the US,
India and Pakistan but this was more than offset by
reductions below the unusually large year-ago levels in
North Africa, China, Iran and other countries, partly also
resulting from stock-building in preceding months.
In Jan/March 2014 the vegetable oil market is faced
with unusually low export supplies, primarily of palm oil
and soya oil, both affected by seasonally small production
and low stocks in the key exporting countries...
