ADMISI London Wheat Report for 5 December

London Wheat Report

Source: FutureSource 

Happy Monday! Great to see so many faces new and old on Friday at the London Bourse with a good attendance seen. Chinese markets appear to be firing up again with the central government announcing that they are dropping measures toward COVID. Russian oil price cap has been set at $60/ba, offered brent some support earlier on today. Most Russian oil is being sold to India and China at circa $50/ba, market discount for Russian crude and costs of production sit around $20/ba, so coffers are still being lined. And this is before we get into any creative rebranding/invoicing/origin that will most certainly be seen.

Wheat markets actually opened up with some support before tailing off again. Chicago wheat pushed much lower than expected with Mar-23 trading down 19 cents at time of writing, trading low being 74.5 so far. US weekly wheat inspections rose above expectations to 334,653t in the week to Dec-1.

Prices for Russian wheat with 12.5% protein content and for supply from Black Sea ports in late December-early January were at $315/t free on board (FOB) on Friday evening, down $2 from a week earlier, the IKAR agriculture consultancy said in a note.

Further downward pressure seen from announcements that the Aussie wheat harvest is coming in at a stonking 36.6Mmt, 1% increase over last year’s stonker. While the spring rain has impacted production, yields and quality in some parts of the country, some states are experiencing their best winter crops on record,” ABARES Director Jared Greenville said in a statement. Pakistan has announced a 950kt wheat purchase of optional origin with circa 450kt of this purchase expected to be Russian at a reported $372/t. 

Beans are still experiencing small spot buying with China purchasing a reported 130kt of beans from the US. Brazil’s soybean sowing is 91% complete as of Thursday last week according to trade reports.
