Dominic Hogan Outlook commodities comments

Look Out!

  • Wheat and corn got smacked last night.

  • Beans and Canola were up.

  • Saudi bought some Milling wheat for USD $278 to USD $285 delivered between February and May next year.

  • Price variance is dependent upon which side of the country you drive your ship to, Red Sea or Arabian Gulf.

  • Hokey Pokey and Dracula (Romania) will most likely be the suppliers.  

  • Freight from the Ruskies is around USD $25 to Red Sea and USD $32 to Arabian Gulf, so it works back to USD $253 FOB Russia.

  • Add USD $50 for the premium for Aussie wheat, which is where we were selling this year when we had a 39 million tonne crop and wallah, USD $300 + FOB ex WA.  

  • The Chinese Xi Cricket Team imported a record 3.59 million tonnes of corn in November.

  • But China produced a record 289 million tonne corn crop this year.

  • Their hog market is a basket case as the economy is on its knees and everyone has run out of money to buy food.

  • So, apparently China has no demand for commodities this year, nudge nudge, wink wink, say no more.

  • There are 20,000 weather pictures of Brazil coming out every day, some are wet, some are dry, so who knows what will happen over there.

  • The December rainfall is forecast to be well below the average and the temperatures are the hottest in 24 years.

  • The forecast for the Jan – March period is for average rainfalls, but the crop might already be past recovery in the Matto Grosso region which is 30% of the planted soybean crop.

  • Reports now that Brazilian farmers are also delaying the purchases of fertilizer for the Safrihna corn planting.
