CBOT soybean futures gained 2.5% last week


Over the period under review (July 27-August 02), CBOT soybean futures gained 2.46%, reports UkrAgroConsult.

Soybean futures were supported by increased soybean exports from the USA, despite the absence of purchases by China and expected worsening of crop conditions estimate of the USDA.

In the second half of the week, soybean market was pressured by bearish factors. Crop conditions did not change – 70% of the crop was in good and excellent condition. Moreover, the market followed the recent escalation of USA-China trade relations: The US President announced a 25% increase in import duties for Chinese goods in the total amount of USD 200 billion instead of the 10% duty. What is more, when approaching the end of the season, the exports of US old-crop soybean decrease.

CBOT soybean oil futures wend down to 28.12 cents per pound (-0.11% over the week). Bearish trends of the second half of the week in the soybean market pushed the soyoil prices down.
