A shaking world wheat market

By Chris Lyddon (World Grain), 12/11/2018

In its Agri Commodities Monthly Report for October, Rabobank noted short-term support for wheat futures worldwide on the basis of tightening global fundamentals. “This support is forecast until further confidence emerges with respect to new 2019-20 crop supplies,” Rabobank said, noting that Northern Hemisphere plantings were nearing completion as it was published on Oct. 19. Rabobank called the record Russian export pace, with 13.8 million tonnes exported from July to September, “unsustainable.” “As Russian exports slow or are potentially restricted, demand would predominantly shift to the U.S., Argentina or even the E.U.,” Rabobank said.

Wheat sags as weak exports, firm dollar prompt fund selling

Wheat sags as weak exports, firm dollar prompt fund selling | MED-Amin network | Scoop.it

By Julie Ingwersen (Reuters), 25/10/2018

U.S. wheat futures fell more than 2% on 25/10, with the benchmark December contract on the Chicago Board of Trade hitting its lowest in nine months, as sluggish export demand and a strong dollar prompted fund liquidation, analysts said. Corn and soybean futures also sank on poor weekly U.S. export sales data coupled with seasonal pressure from the advancing U.S. harvest. CBOT December wheat settled down 12-1/4 cents at $4.87-1/4 per bushel after dipping to $4.85-1/2, the contract's lowest level since Jan. 24 and the lowest for a most active wheat contract since mid-July. CBOT December corn ended down 7-1/4 cents at $3.61 a bushel after hitting a two-week low at $3.60-1/2. November soybeans fell 8-1/2 cents to $8.41-3/4 a bushel after recording a one-month low at $8.40. Wheat posted the biggest declines on a percentage basis as strength in the dollar added to concerns about export demand for U.S. supplies. The worries persisted even as the U.S. Department of Agriculture's weekly U.S. wheat export sales figure, at 442,500 tonnes for the current crop year, was in line with trade expectations. "It's still not enough to make a market. Lower prices are all about trying to find demand, and we're not finding it," said Tom Fritz, a partner with EFG Group in Chicago. Technical selling added to the slide as CBOT December wheat broke below its July low of $4.90, Fritz said, adding: "You are in the process of blowing out every long in there."

Grain and Cereal Crop Market Size Projected to Rise Lucratively during 2018 to 2027 – Tactical Business

Grain and Cereal Crop Market Size Projected to Rise Lucratively during 2018 to 2027 – Tactical Business | MED-Amin network | Scoop.it

 

by Abhishek Budholiya (The Tactical Business), 03/10/2018

The global market for grain and cereal crop market has been expanding at a robust rate because of several government initiatives to improve the quality of food products. Not only has the market for grain and cereal crops expanded in size but has also undergone key improvements in the quality of its products. The demand within the global grain and cereal crops has risen on account of the health benefits served by these crops to the masses. Furthermore, several packaged as well as non-packaged food products are now added with processed grains or cereals to enhance the nutritional value of the food. Owing to these reasons, it is safe to estimate that the demand within the global market for grain and cereal crops would increase by leaps and bounds.

Logistique des marchés agricoles : Les principaux chantiers du Plan Maroc Vert (Aujourd'hui)

Logistique des marchés agricoles : Les principaux chantiers du Plan Maroc Vert (Aujourd'hui) | MED-Amin network | Scoop.it

L'amélioration des conditions logistiques est un enjeu majeur de la rénovation des économies agricoles à l'échelle d'un pays. Le Plan Maric Vert s'est attaché à faciliter la logistique afin d'acheminer au mieux les denrées agro-alimentaires importées au consommateur marocain et celles exportées vers les ports de l'Atlantique ou de la Méditerranée.

Des moyens logistiques importants sont engagés dans l’acheminement des céréales de production locale ou d’importation vers le consommateur final. Ces moyens logistiques concernent aussi bien le transport et la manutention des matières premières et des produits finis que les opérations de transit, de stockage et de transformation. Des investissements importants en logistique de réception ont été réalisés par le secteur privé et par la SOSIPO, filiale de l’Office national interprofessionnel des céréales et légumineuses (ONICL). L’importation transite par les silos portuaires de Nador, Casablanca, Safi, Jorf et Agadir.

New AMIS Market Monitor: November 2018

New AMIS Market Monitor: November 2018 | MED-Amin network | Scoop.it

November issue, released on 01/11/2018 by AMIS

"With impacts of adverse weather having largely faded and tariff hikes already factored in, markets have become calmer in recent weeks. Nevertheless, despite firmer production estimates and the increased likelihood of a generally positive supply situation in the 2018/19 season, robust demand has kept prices tilted to the upside. Recent strong movements in currency and energy markets seem to have had little impact on market sentiment. The market’s focus is gradually shifting to growing conditions of crops in the ground or soon to be planted, against a backdrop of uncertainty given a possible El Niño event."

World wheat market in expectation of Argentina supply

By UkrAgroConsult, 23/10/2018

In the current season, the key suppliers of Black Sea wheat – Russia and Ukraine – continue enjoying high export prices and strong global demand for their commodity.

In view of a decrease in the 2018/19 world wheat crop and rather unfavorable conditions for planting winter crops for the 2019 harvest, some grain growers decide to keep part of their crop in stock and wait for a price hike in the latter half of the season. However, when choosing their sales strategy in the current season, market participants should take into consideration Argentina’s coming to the world market, as this country may curb expected growth of world prices, reports UkrAgroConsult. Local farmers have started harvesting new-crop wheat, and sales from Argentina can be expected to surge as soon as November-December.

Numerous factors contribute to wild swings in U.S. wheat futures

Numerous factors contribute to wild swings in U.S. wheat futures | MED-Amin network | Scoop.it

by Jay Sjerven (World Grain), 14/08/2018

Wheat futures earlier this month surged above recent highs set in May in Kansas City and Chicago and seemed poised to do so in Minneapolis spring wheat futures. While the rally that erupted in early July has been breathtaking, so, too, was the break in wheat futures from May highs to early-July lows that preceded it. The wild swings in fortune in the wheat market were tied to weather-related shifts in the U.S. and world wheat supply-and-demand outlooks for 2018-19 (USDA, International Grain Council), according to market analysts interviewed by Milling & Baking News.
