Analysis 12/02/2016

European market

Financial markets plunged yesterday again due to fall of crude oil, slowdown of Chinese economy and risks implied by the weakness of European banking sector.

Raw material showed some relative steadiness this week despite of the crash of equities and that could be the beginning of a slight decorrelation between financial and commodities markets.

Egypt has launched a new wheat tender, still in a context of confusion about qualitative demand  that could scare international operators. The boat of French wheat chartered by Bunge for last December delivery is still waiting for unloading in Egypt, divergences are persisting between GASC demands and the Agricultural Minister.

This week, Brussels granted 589 000 t of wheat export certificates taking the total for the season to 16.2 Mt. Export certificates for barley reached 103 000 t for a total of 6.4 Mt since beginning of the campaign. On corn, import certificates amounted to 182 000 t taking the total to 8.9 Mt.

Corn is still penalized by the competition of other feed cereals and by bearish trend observed in Chicago.

On rapeseed, market rebounded just before closing after a bearish session due to fall of crude oil prices. Steadiness of soybean, due to US good export data offered some late support to rapeseed, along with palm oil and canola.

American market

Steadiness of soybean last night on CBOT, with firm export numbers at 601 000 t while the market was only expecting between 300 000 t to 600 000 t. On the other way round, corn exports were disappointing with only 346 100 t vs expectations of 800 000 t to 1.1 Mt. On wheat, activity is still very weak.

Corn was penalized as well by the upward trend of ethanol’s stocks, consequence of subdued demand and decline of oil prices.

Funds were net sellers of 4 000 lots of wheat, neutral on corn and net buyers of 9 000 lots of soybean.

Return of Chinese operators next week after New Year holidays, could offer some support to the market. However, arrival of South American harvest should reduce bullish potential.

Black Sea market

Slide of the grivna vs dollar has recently increased and the Ukrainian currency broke for the first time ever the level of 26 against USD. Since the start of the year, the devaluation reached nearly 10% and statement is the same versus euro with a level of 29.2 quoted by the NBU (Ukrainian central bank). As a reminder, official exchange rate is below interbank market used by private banks. Furthermore, recent political events, with the resignation of the Minister of Economy, Mr Aivaras Abramovicius, to protest against perception of insider influence, are destabilizing the political system. Mr Arseni Iatseniouk, the Prime Minister, conditioned continuing in office to a deep reform of the political system.  The IMF as well is asking for the implementation of reforms promised in May 2015 by Mr Petro Poroshenko. To date, IMF has already paid 6. 7 billion of dollars out of a potential of 17.5 billion. Worries expressed by Mrs Lagarde have been confirmed by the World Bank just after. Ukraine is again in a tough situation.
