Wheat Exports Reach 10-Week High

Wheat Exports Reach 10-Week High

Soybean Oil Futures Trade Limit Up, Reach 12 Year High

Low soybean stocks and heightened demand from the biofuels sector, along with limited refining capacity has created a volatile soybean and soybean oil market.  The stocks to use ratio for soybeans has fallen to 2.6 percent. This is the lowest stocks to use ratio since 2013 and to put it in perspective, last year the ratio was about 13 percent. Tightening supplies lead to an increased probability for higher prices while at the same time increasing volatility within the marketplace. Soybean prices closed 36 cents per bushel higher at 15.33¼ for May Delivery, while soybean oil prices climbed 2.33 cents per pound to 62.52 cents for May delivery.
