ADMISI London Wheat Report for 9 May

London Wheat Report

Source: FutureSource 

Supply concerns lifted wheat markets to start the day off, both in the US and Europe. Wheat found substantial support due to the trade continuing to put significant focus onto the drier than desired weather pattern in the last couple of months in the EU before pulling back. EU soft wheat maturity is well into a phase where dry conditions will impact overall totals. Forecast going forward is also not very promising. US crop ratings, released later on, are expected to be steady to better with the SRW being the best by far. Canada’s eastern prairies are seeing a similar pattern. Canada’s western prairies continue to be drier than desired. While supplies of wheat have a tendency to end up adequate, it’s tough to count on that right now. Market structure and overbought conditions appear to be the primary negative inputs in wheat futures. Matif Sep-22 hit a trading high of €405/t before pulling back and settling at €394.50/t, down €3.00 on Friday.

US weekly wheat inspections fell by 40% to 236,874tt in the week ending May 5th according to the USDA. No major sales reported. Ukraine exported 1.090Mmt of grain in April according to Agriculture Minister Mykola Solskyi. Vivergo is firing up with first shipments reported to have left the plant last week. Production is set to gradually ramp up towards the end of June according to Vivergo.

Corn and soybeans continued to cool with better planting prospects offering resistance. Demand has been in line with expectations. Potential for heavy spec liquidation may be the biggest potential negative factor near current levels. China’s April bean imports are 8.08 MMT for a year total of 28.36 MMT, which is down .8% from the prior year. China’s y/y edible oil imports are estimated down 65.6% to 1.30 MMT. Safras estimated Brazilian bean production at 122.3 MMT vs. prior 125.08 MMT. They have total corn production at 118.41 MMT with second crop corn at 83.25 MMT or down about 1 MMT from prior estimate.

Malaysian palm oil remains supported. Brent crude was trading down 4.62% at time of writing at $107.27/ba. Matif rapeseed found support with Aug-22 settling €4.50 up on Friday at €846.50/t.
