World soybean stocks will fall below the year-ago level as of end-August 2016...
World soybean stocks will fall below the year-ago level as of end-August 2016, contrary to earlier expectations of an increase. The downward revisions will be mainly on account of the USA (larger than expected exports and crushings in May/Aug 2016) and South America (due to the lower soybean crop). Our revised estimates will be given in the OIL WORLD MONTHLY of April 29.
Soybean has improved its competitiveness relative to corn. The soybean/corn price ratio has recovered noticeably since mid-March when the US planting intentions survey was taken. As of April 21 the soybean/corn price ratio had recovered to 2.65 in the May contract and 2.54 for the new crop (Nov soybeans/Dec corn) compared with 2.42 and 2.33 in mid-March. Will US farmers shift some of their intended corn area to soybeans? Or has the improvement in the competitiveness of soybeans come too late?

MALAYSIA: Palm Oil Output Seen Declining to 4-Year
Low in 2016...
The latest production results and ongoing dryness prompted us to reduce our estimate of
Malaysian palm oil output in Jan/Dec 2016 to 19.2 Mn T, 4% less than a year ago and probably
the lowest level in four years.
The ongoing dry spell in key palm oil areas of Malaysia will affect production with a time lag
of 6-9 months. Sabah and Johor received only 40–50% of normal rainfall during April 1-10,
aggravating the drought stress to palm trees
after the deficient rainfall throughout most of

Market Needs to Reconcile Shortage of Vegetable Oils
with Glut of Soybeans...
Soya oil is likely to follow palm oil upward to
finance a growing share of the soybean crush. This
may not prevent soybean prices from declining as large
supplies of soya meal are likely to exert price pressure...

UKRAINE & RUSSIA: Spring Planting Prospects...
Record sunseed plantings of 13.1 Mn ha are
considered likely in 2016 in Ukraine and Russia combined
(up 0.7 Mn ha from last year), in our opinion,
owing to a combination of supportive world veg. oil
fundamentals, attractive prices and relatively low
production costs. This is seen raising the possibility for
a record sunseed crop to be harvested in the autumn of
2016 on the assumption of normal weather conditions
OIL WORLD WEEKLY of 11 March 2016...
EU-28 Supply & Demand Update 2015/16...
The EU-28 is currently expected to increase net imports of oilseeds by 0.7 Mn T to 18.4 Mn T in Oct/Sept 2015/16, the highest level in 14 years. The higher import demand results mainly from this season’s smaller EU rapeseed and sunseed crops. The EU may turn into a net importer of sunflowerseed this season. Despite larger imports, EU crushings of oilseeds are forecast to decline by as much as 1.0 Mn T to 46.9 Mn T in Oct/Sept 2015/16. Increases in soybeans and linseed will be more than offset by pronounced reductions in sunseed and rapeseed.
OIL WORLD WEEKLY of 4 March 2016...
Lauric oil prices continued to appreciate during the week in review..
Lauric oil prices continued to appreciate during the week in review - gaining US-$ 30. At the close of Febr 25 palmkernel oil was quoted at US-$ 1030 in Rotterdam, US-$ 380 above the low established as of end-Aug 2015. In the same period coconut oil prices advanced by US-$ 300 and were quoted at a one-year high of US-$ 1255 in Rotterdam yesterday.
Lauric oil prices have been supported by prospects of declining production and export supplies - at least in Jan/June 2016.
However, we consider lauric oil prices as unsustainably high and expect a narrowing of the price premiums relative to palm oil. This adjustment is likely to come from a slowing-down of consumption.

The spectacular growth in exports of soya oil and meal has recently driven soybean crushings to record levels in Argentina...
The spectacular growth in exports of soya oil and meal has recently driven soybean crushings to record levels in Argentina. Processing of soybeans is promoted by tightening supplies of palm oil and relatively low crushings of other oilseeds.
Net exports of soybeans from the five key countries declined for the third month in a row with a year-on-year reduction of 1.0 Mn T in January, primarily due to a temporary slowdown of demand from China.
The demand for US soybeans and products suffered a severe blow from strong South American competition and the strength of the US dollar. In Nov/Jan 2015/16 US soybean disposals (crushings plus net exports) plunged by as much as 5.0 Mn T from a year earlier, resulting in burdensome US soybean stocks.

World Palm Oil Production Declining From A Year Ago...
The downtrend in stocks and export supplies has contributed to appreciating prices and a narrowing of the price
discounts vis-a-vis soya oil and other vegetable oils.
Further price increases are limited by the increasing
probability that demand for palm oil as a biodiesel feedstock will be curbed in Indonesia, Europe, Malaysia and
