Soybean Oil Futures Market News and Commentary

Soybean Market News and Commentary

Soybean futures are mostly 1 to 2 1/2 cents lower this morning. Chinese futures at Dalian were 11 to 24CY lower on Monday while US markets were closed. That was their fourth down day in a row. US beans posted 3 to 4 cent gains in most contracts on Friday, on positive NOPA data. Meal futures were up $1/ton in the nearby contract, with soy oil 6 points higher. Friday morning’s NOPA report indicated a record January crush by its members at 171.63 mbu. That was slightly lower than December but 5.22% larger than a year ago. Soy oil stocks were up month/month, but down 10.3% from last year at 1.549 billion pounds. Brazil’s SAFRAS soybean production estimate was trimmed by 0.3 MMT to 115.4 MMT on Friday. That is not as low as some firms have gone, as SAFRAS cited a slight improvement to weather.--provided by Brugler Marketing & Management
