Chinese Ag futures (May) settled down 47 yuan in soybeans, down 13 in Corn, up 38 in Soymeal, down 164 in Soyoil, and down 154 in Palm Oil. Malaysian palm oil prices were down 95 ringgit at 3,702 (basis March) looking at weaker January exports.
Quiet before the storm. Soybean and corn futures will follow reaction to USDA numbers. Some doubt USDA will make big changes to South America crops which could limit their increase in US exports and drop in carryout. USDA could decide to wait to make changes in February. Demand buying is below the market if initial reaction is negative. Soymeal is higher on slow Argentina exports and higher China domestic prices. Soyoil is lower following lower palmoil prices. Wheat futures are higher on higher Paris wheat futures and no Russia export price offers. Russia may increase wheat export tax.
