Price forecast weekly from 22th to 26th of June 2020

Grain market:

Analysts predict severe price competition in the Black Sea wheat market this season. The drop of prices of the FOB market from 220 to 200 dollars per ton has already taken place in Europe. It is possible that the prices will reach the level of 190 dollars per ton. Negative sentiment also reigns on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, as good weather conditions contribute to the large crop.

U.S. President Donald Trump on Thursday returned to threats to cut ties with China, the day after the first high-level talks between the countries.

Tensions between the two world economies have often irritated the agricultural commodities market. But the fact of the negotiations is already being perceived positively. This supports positive expectations for international trade, and in particular supports the corn market.

Price forecast weekly from 15th to 19th of June 2020

Grain market:

The June USDA report was published.

In summary: global wheat production increased thanks to the record production in India as well as increased yields in China, Turkey and Australia. All that is compensating the decline in the European Union and Ukraine’s production. Global consumption has been reduced mainly due to reduced feed and residue consumption in Australia and the European Union. Gross wheat harvest increased by 0.64% to 773.4 million tonnes.

The outlook for world maize production is up as the larger harvests in Brazil, Nicaragua and Zambia more than offset the decline in Vietnam. Gross maize harvests increased by 0.14 percent to 1188.5 million tonnes.

Thus, we can say that in a month we have not seen anything negative that can reduce the gross harvest, which brings us closer to the realization that wealth is guaranteed at 99%.

Under such conditions, it is difficult to expect price increasing on the grain market. Apparently, farmers should put up with low prices this year. Agrarian countries can be helped by weakening their own currencies against the US dollar. American farmers can still count on the economic recovery and government subsidies.

Grain market:

The United Nations has been detecting a drop in the food price index for the fourth consecutive month. At the end of May, it fell by 1.9% to 162.5 points. This is the lowest level since December 2018.

The grain market is under pressure, as the crisis will increase the number of households that will switch from more expensive varieties of meat (beef) to the cheaper ones (pork), which will reduce demand for feed. In addition, meat consumption will also decrease in absolute value.

We are waiting for the USDA report this week on the 11th. We haven’t seen a bad influence of weather on plant vegetation. Therefore, we can confidently say that the record figures announced in the previous forecast will be confirmed. This could put additional pressure on the market.

Demand from companies producing disinfectant liquids for alcohol, as well as rising fuel prices support the corn market, as there are prospects for increased production of bioethanol.

Furthermore, in response to President Donald Trump’s criticism of the security law in Hong Kong, China instructed state companies to cancel purchases of soy and pork from the US.
