India Edible Oil Prices Up On Delay In Crop Sowing, Lower Imports(Source: CME)
Edible oil prices in India rose this week because of a delay in sowing of summer-sown oilseed crops in major producing regions due to poor monsoon rains and a fall in imports.
The price of crude palm oil rose to INR36,500 a metric ton Friday from INR36,400 a week earlier, while that of refined soyoil increased to INR42,200 a ton from INR41,500. The price of refined, bleached and deodorized palm olein rose to INR40,400 a ton from INR39,600.
Monsoon rains in east Madhya Pradesh were 41% below normal, while in west Madhya Pradesh, they were 75% below normal. The central Indian state of Madhya Pradesh is the largest producer of soybean, the main summer-sown oilseed crop.
"We expect sowing to pick up in coming weeks as the rains are improving," said a trader based in Indore, a large trading hub in Madhya Pradesh.
Soybean sowing in India starts in June with the onset of the monsoon.
The country's weather office, in its latest update, said central India is likely to get scattered showers in the next five days.
Lower imports in May are also supporting the prices, said another trader.
Edible oil imports in May slipped 23% from a year earlier to 539,169 tons, according to the Solvent Extractors' Association. Imports of crude palm oil declined 29% to 314,581 tons and refined, bleached and deodorized palm olein fell 61% to 56,284 tons.
The South Asian nation is the world's second-largest edible oil consumer after China and meets more than half of its requirement through imports. It imports palm oil mainly from Indonesia and Malaysia, and soyoil mostly from Brazil and Argentina.

GLOBAL MARKETS: World stocks weighed by growth fears; gold up
NEW YORK, June 24 (Reuters) - World stock markets and high-yielding currencies dropped on Thursday as investors retreated from riskier assets, worried about tepid global growth and renewed fears in Greek debt markets.
The Federal Reserve offered a subdued assessment of the U.S. economy on Wednesday and affirmed that short-term interest rates would remain near zero for "an extended period," which pressured U.S. equities for a second consecutive day on Thursday.

20100625 1118 Soy Oil & Palm Oil News.

ITS Cargo Surveyor Crude Palm Oil export up 8.9% for the period 1~25 Jun 2010

Soyoil futures stumbled near two-week lows, as a bearish up of stocks reported in the Census crush report weighed on prices. Soyoil has become an excess by product of the crush with demand from the biodiesel industry shut down, said Don Roose, president of U.S. commodities in West Des Moines, Iowa. Technical weakness helped anchor prices as well, but solid export demand limited losses. July soyoil settled 0.42 cent, or 1.1%, lower at 37.17 cents per pound.(Source: CME)

Supply, Favorable Conditions To Depress Soybean Prices(Source: CME)
Strong soybean harvests expected over the next two years may depress prices of the commodity as stocks rise, boosting supplies of soybeans and soyoil, a Rabobank International analyst said Thursday.
Strong demand from China is likely to push corn prices higher, however, and to limit any losses for soybeans and other oilseeds.
Global soybean stocks may reach 60 million metric tons in the 2009-10 crop year to September, and are likely to hit 74 million tons during 2010-11, said John Baker, Rabobank's regional head in Asia for Food and Agribusiness Research and Advisory.
Soybean prices may decline slightly to $9 a bushel in September, he said. In electronic trading, Chicago Board of Trade prices for soybeans to be delivered in July were up 5 1/2 cents at $9.635/bushel around 0930 GMT.
The expected decline in soybean prices will likely be limited, however.
Rising demand from China for soybeans and other oilseeds are expected to support global prices, as China's imports of soybeans alone may reach 50 million tons during 2010-11. The China National Grain & Oils information Centre forecasts 2009-10 imports at 47.5 million tons.
Palm oil prices, which track soyoil prices because they are rival products in many export markets, may "fall off slightly in the next few months, but I expect crude palm oil to (continue to) trade above $700/ton," Baker said.
The U.S. corn crop, the world's largest, may reach 13.5 billion bushels in 2010-11, up from 13.2 billion bushels in 2008-09, and Argentina's current corn harvest may yield 21 million tons, he said.
"Production in Brazil may reach 54.1 million tons in 2009-10, up 6.2% from the previous marketing year," he said.
Despite the large harvests, corn prices will be supported by demand from China as dry weather conditions hurt its domestic corn production.
Corn prices may "gradually trend upwards and reach $4.10/bushel in March 2011," Baker said.

Palm oil up on strong demand hopes
KUALA LUMPUR, June 24 (Reuters) - Malaysian crude palm oil futures made little headway  as players took positions ahead of export data expected to be strong, although lacklustre crude markets curbed gains.  "The market is consolidating but there is short covering ahead of the export numbers," said a trader in Kuala Lumpur.

GLOBAL MARKETS: Dollar off on Fed view as stocks dip, bonds rise
NEW YORK, June 23 (Reuters) - The dollar weakened across the board while Treasuries rallied on Wednesday after the U.S. Federal Reserve acknowledged a faltering economic recovery and data showed sales of new U.S. homes fell to a lifetime low.
"There's no rate hike expected for the foreseeable future - at least not until the end of the year, if not 2011," said Michael Woolfolk, senior currency strategist at BNY Mellon in New York. "The longer the Fed keeps kicking the can down the road, the less positive this is for the U.S. dollar outlook."  

World stocks retreat on growth fears
LONDON, June 23 (Reuters) - European and Asian stocks fell  as fears about the global economic recovery dominated investors thinking and renewed concerns over Europe's banking system undermined flows into risky assets.
"(The Fed) may downgrade its view of the US economy ... citing the latest disappointing employment data, renewed weakness in the housing sector and recent turmoil in Europe," said Nick Stamenkovic, rate strategist at RIA Capital Markets.

20100624 0942 Soy Oil & Palm Oil News.

Soyoil futures garnered pressure from weakness in soybeans and spillover pressure from crude oil. Crude oil influences soyoil due to its use in making renewable fuels. July soyoil settled 0.34 cent, or 0.9%, lower at 37.59 cents per pound. Speculative funds were estimated sellers of 3,000 lots in soyoil. July soymeal ended $1.40, or 0.5%, lower at $289.30 per short ton. Speculative funds were estimated sellers of 1,000 lots in soymeal.(Source: CME)

Indonesia To Maintain CPO Export Tax At 4.5% In July
Indonesia will maintain its export tax on crude palm oil at 4.5% in July, the Ministry of Trade said Wednesday. The base price for CPO in July has been lowered to $732 a metric ton from $754/ton in June, it said.(Source: CME)

Asian CPO Output To Rise In 2H, Bearish For Prices-Analyst
Crude palm oil production in Indonesia and Malaysia may rise further in the second half of the year, pushing inventory to a level where it could start weighing on prices, a Netherlands-based analyst at Rabobank International said in an interview. 
"Prices are definitely vulnerable to further declines given high volatility in the market now. The global economic (outlook is still) uncertain. On the production front, yields will increase in the second half of the year... depressing prices," said Chan Wei Siang, analyst at Rabobank International's Food & Agribusiness Research and Advisory.
Malaysia and Indonesia together account for 80% of the palm oil produced globally. Southeast Asia's total palm oil stocks are likely to be around 3.6 million tons now as output in June would have risen significantly, traders in Malaysia and Indonesia estimated. Unofficial projections put current Indonesian stocks around 2 million tons. Malaysia's official June estimates will be released in the second week of July.
According to market participants, output in Malaysia would have risen some 15% in June while in Indonesia the gain was as much as 20% on month. But it may not all be bad news for producers. "Though output will increase in the second half, (overall) growth in CPO output will likely be muted in 2010 due to the residual effect of El-Nino," Chan said. Even though the El-Nino has officially ended, its impact can last six to ten months as oil palm trees continue to remain under stress caused by dry weather during the El-Nino months.
Total CPO production in 2010 may rise by only 3% or 500,000 tons to 18.1 million tons in Malaysia, while Indonesia's output could rise by 7% or 1.5 million tons to 22.4 million tons, he said.
The record high South American soybean harvest this year has already reduced soyoil prices, narrowing the price gap with the lower-priced palm oil. In some cases, palm oil is even trading at a slight premium to soyoil.
"The narrow price differential has made soyoil very competitive (in international markets) with more buyers making the switch from palm," Chan said.
Palm oil traditionally trades at a discount of more than $100/ton to soyoil, but that has narrowed to the point where palm olein now trades in a range that is just $20 above or below soyoil.(Source: CME)

Degraded land rules key to Indonesia climate goal
SINGAPORE, June 23 (Reuters) - Indonesia needs to quickly settle rules for deciding what is degraded land and spell out how much is available to palm oil and timber firms in order to strengthen investment certainty, an environmental expert says.
Such a move would also boost a $1-billion climate deal signed last month by Indonesia and Norway.

Indonesia lowers July CPO, cocoa base export prices
JAKARTA, June 23 (Reuters) - Indonesia will keep its July export taxes for crude palm oil and cocoa beans unchanged from June levels, but will lower base export prices, the trade ministry said on Wednesday.
The crude palm oil export tax will stay at 4.5 percent in July while the cocoa export tax will remain at 10 percent, the ministry said in a statement.

GLOBAL MARKETS: US stocks slip on oil ruling, Europe hit by banksNEW YORK, June 22 (Reuters) - Uncertainty over Washington's ban on deepwater oil drilling, coupled with weak May U.S. housing data, sank stocks and lifted Treasuries, while a high-profile credit downgrade rattled Europe's banks.

China - Yuan gain may alter global growth more than velocity
China’s shift toward a stronger exchange rate may alter the shape of the world economy’s expansion more than its speed, economists said. Chinese consumers might buy more as the rising yuan boosts their purchasing power, while their counterparts in the US cut back on their spending as the cost of goods imported into America rises. The shift will add 0.1 percentage point to global growth this year and next, leaving the rate at about 4%., (Bloomberg)
