Analysis 21/07/2017

European market

The Euro came back onto its highest levels since august 2015 against the dollar. The increase movement already in place, accelerated following Mario Draghi’s statement. The ECB director reassured the markets by maintaining the current monetary policy. The increase movement naturally led to a new downward adjustment of agricultural commodities. European wheat prices registered a decline yesterday on Euronext and on the CME.

While harvest in Europe is progressing, operators are integrating the latest export numbers. The European commission showed a cumulative volume of 460 378 t since 1st of July.  In detail, more than 50% of the volumes are credited to France. At the same time, European barley exports are progressing knowing that the attention of exporters is shifting towards Saudi Arabia. This country has launched a new tender for 1.5 Mt of feed barley for deliveries between September and October.

Regarding Imports, corn volumes are still progressing. On the international stage, South-american availabilities are still on very high levels knowing that Argentina revised up its production estimation. The agricultural ministry integrated an increase of acreage and yields.     

American market

The latest forecast evolution of the US weather conditions are bringing support to the corn as well as beans prices. Indeed, ongoing dry weather in North Dakota and Montana pushed the US drought monitor to requalify several areas in “severe drought”. This is likely to lead to new degradation of the USDA crop ratings. The conditions of the spring crops are also worrying in Canada as seen in the Saskatchewan province were dry and hot weather without rains is observed in several areas.

The Dec 17 wheat contract bounced yesterday after it tested its 5.2 $/bu support. Good US export sales on weekly basis were supportive.


Black Sea market

Significant rainfall are expected in the main growing regions of the Black Sea area in the coming week. Models are showing that farmers have 2 or 3 more days of hot weather to go on harvesting before storms appears. 20 mm up to 30 mm of water are expected this weekend and in the beginning of the week. The north-western part of Ukraine could even record as much as 75 mm of precipitations.

On the first hand rains are likely to slow down the harvest work but, on the other hand, they will be supportive for the spring crops that sometimes highly need this water. Indeed, the temperatures are now often close to or even above 30°C.
