20101214 0937 Soy Oil & Palm Oil Related News.

Soy product futures settled higher, rallying in step with soybeans amid broad-based commodity buying. Soyoil was the upside leader of the products, garnering additional support from strong global vegoil demand and fears weather issues for Malaysian and Indonesian palm oil crops will trim world vegoil supplies, analysts said. Strong gains in crude oil aided the supportive tone. Crude oil influences grain and oilseeds due to their use in making renewable fuels. Soyoil, a byproduct of soybeans, is the primary feedstock for U.S. biodiesel production. CBOT January soyoil ended 1.29 cents, or 2.4%, higher at 55.45 cents per pound, and January soymeal traded $5.20, or 1.5%, higher at $342.80 a short ton. January oil shar was 44.67%, while the January soybean crush margin ended at 60 1/4 cents. (Source: CME)

"Local oilseeds crushing has also improved, compared with last year," said B.V. Mehta, executive director of the trade body. According to the Central Organization of Oil Industry and Trade, India's summer-sown oilseeds output in the crop year that began Oct. 1 is likely to rise 12.4% to 15.4 million tons from 13.7 million tons in the previous year. India's edible oil imports this marketing year are likely to remain unchanged from previous year's 8.8 million tons, Sushil Goenka, president of the Solvent Extractors' Association, said earlier this month.
