Straights Update

11th September 2019 Currency - £/$ 1.2350  £/Euro 1.1227

RAW MATERIALS

 

Hipro soya: Prices moved back as the weather forecast remained non-threatening to the delayed crop however there are concerns that if there are early frosts they  could be detrimental if the crop is still in the developmental stages.  Sterling improved as a No-Deal Brexit looked less and less likely (up to $1.23). The US and China are set to return to negotiations soon but the market has heard this all before. 

 

 

Rapemeal: Ex-Erith prices also moved back, with Sterling improving against the Euro (€1.12).  The premium remains for the 2nd half of the winter when Ukrainian seed stops coming over end of Dec. Seems well valued against mid-protein straights like distillers.

 

 

Wheat: Ex-farm prices moved up despite stronger currency, this was due to MP’s voting to block No-Deal, making it increasingly likely we will remain in the EU after the 31st October therefore more likely to maintain exports.

 

Best buys:

   

Molasses: Prices for the winter set to increase £15 or so (depending on product/location) so would highly recommend putting in a load at summer prices if able to fit it in during September!!

 

Hydramix cubicle lime: £10/T off until the end of December

Proteins: prices have come off recently so worth looking at some cover

Barley levels beginning to creep up with more prospect of export.
