Dominic Hogan Outlook commodities comments

Look Out!

  • Chicago wheat was up on Friday night whilst Kansas wheat, corn and beans were all softer.

  • Matif and Winnipeg Canola were both up strongly as crude oil futures firmed on the back of uncertainty in the Middle East region.

  • China bought a bit more US Soft Red wheat. As mentioned last week, US SRW is cheap at USD $252 FOB (Free on board) ex US Gulf.

  • Freight from the US Gulf to China is around USD $55 per tonne, so it would land around just over USD $300 C&F (Cost and freight).

  • On a parity basis, this would work back to USD $282 FOB West Coast or AUD $415 FIS (Free in site) WA for ASW wheat.

  • Working it back to the East Coast, it converts to USD $277 FOB or AUD $388 Track for ASW.

  • Hence it made the ASX Jan 24 wheat sell off a bit stupid last week when it hit AUD $390, or a whopping AUD $2 premium to the Chinese business at parity.
