Soybean Market News and Commentary

Soybean futures saw 5 to 6 cent losses in most front months on Monday. Meal futures were down $2.40/ton in the nearby contract, with soy oil 1 point higher. The USDA reported another private export sale of 926,000 MT of soybeans to China for 18/19 delivery. This was likely part of the rumored 2 MMT from a week ago, and thus didn’t get the bulls fired up. Soybean exports in the week that ended on March 7 were tallied at 874,363 MT. That was slightly above last week but down 6% from this week last year. A total of 386,581 MT was shipped to China. CONAB will release their monthly Brazil production update on Tuesday, with USDA trimming their projection to 116.5 MMT on Friday. Safras & Mercado estimates the Brazil soybean harvest was 52.1% complete as of March 8, compared to the 46.4% average.
