Dominic Hogan Outlook commodities comments

Look Out!

  • Markets were relatively quiet last night, apart from beans that got smashed.

  • Doesn’t make a great deal of sense as the South American crop forecast guru Dr. Cordonnier shaved some more off the Brazilian soybean crop, calling it around 149 million tonnes.

  • The USDA’s guess last Friday was 157 million tonnes, which is overdone.

  • US soybeans have fallen 137 cents / bushel or USD $50 per tonne since the start of December 2023.

  • The Egyptians bought 300,000 tonnes of Russian wheat and 60,000 tonnes of French wheat last night.

  • The Ruskie price was all fixed at UDSD $265 FOB (Free on Board) at 270 days credit, which works back to USD $253 FOB, which is the same price they paid 7 days ago.

  • World market prices don’t seem to be falling away if you are buying Russian wheat.

  • Also, the 4 sellers of Ruskie wheat all had the same price. 

  • Did someone just say single desk?

  • There was one vessel of French wheat that was sold at a discount to the Ruskie wheat.

  • See, a regulated marketing system does produce a higher return; now I will get back down off my soap box.
