Soybeans

Soybean futures gave back a majority of Wednesday’s gains, down 9-10 3/4 cents in the nearby contracts. January soy meal was down $2.40/ton, as nearby bean oil was 57 points lower. Soybean old crop export sales are expected to be in the range of 0.8-1.5 MMT in Friday’s USDA report. Total sales expected for soy meal are 100,000-300,000 MT, with 5,000-25,000 MT seen for soy oil. A Reuters report shows that roughly half of the US shipments to China in 2017 consisted of more than 1% FM, the new standard effective in January. Increased cleaning will increase costs to US exporters. Following Wednesday’s explosion at a Rosario port that left one dead, workers started a 48 hour strike with the reason being safety concerns. The market showed little reaction, as exports there are typically slower around this time of year.
